    Wondering if anyone here owns a small business where they pay for their employees' health insurance costs. Could you please tell me:
    -How many employees do you have?
    -How much does it cost (annually or monthly) per employee?
    -What insurance plan do you use/or alternatively, it you reimburse them, what plan do they use? Is it individual or family coverage.

    I used to offer employees health insurance, but had to discontinue the program when it went from 400 to $600 per person within 2 years.

    Maybe you can help get a low rate for your employees,but paying for it would be too costly.With the economy doing so poorly it would put such a strain on your business. It is good of you to consider it.

    My dh pays about $400 a month for family medical/dental/eye coverage through work,but it is a joke since they stopped covering meds and our deductible is now 6k before they cover anything.We have to spend 6k a year just to get them to pay 80%

    I do wish our country had universal coverage like so many other countries.Paying a company and then HOPING they cover your medical care is just unacceptable.

    8 employees, low of $519 a month and a high of $1350 per month. PPO plan. Employees pay about $16 a month of that cost. Yes, I am extremely lucky.

    Thanks guys, these are all extremely helpful for getting a general idea! It seems to have shot up per employee rapidly, especially in the small business sector.
