New York open enrollment in 2017 runs from November 1 to December 15. During this time, if you and your employees are signing up for individual health plans, you can go to a site like healthcare.gov, browse available plans in New York, and sign up for a plan that meets your needs. Coverage for plans selected during this time begins on January 1, 2018 and ends on December 31, 2018.
If you're like many of the small businesses we talk to everyday, you may be wondering if you should direct your employees to healthcare.gov to sign up for their own, individual plan or if you should offer a group health insurance plan.
Here are some reasons why enrolling in a small business health insurance plan instead of sending your employees to the individual exchange is a better idea:
