Avenue H enhances consumer choice and gives small business owners the ability to offer more health insurance options for themselves and their employees all in one place. The benefits of an online health insurance marketplace include:
- Choice and Value - Employers choose the amount they can contribute and employees choose the plan that meets their needs.
- Tax Benefits - Defined contribution and employee-paid funds are pre-tax dollars, and a small business employer tax credit up to 35% of health contributions is available.
- Easy and Guaranteed Issue - Groups cannot be turned down for health reasons, and employers don't have to choose the plan for employees.
