Supplemental Health Insurance Options
Supplemental health insurance is just that. It supplements the group coverage you provide. The great thing about these polices is enrollment is completely voluntary, meaning there is no cost to the employer. The plans are completely portable with no COBRA involvement and are available to spouses and family members. Premiums are paid through convenient payroll deduction, which offers bottom line savings to both employers and employees.
