There´s no doubt an essential requirement in these times is health insurance, because it basically works by protecting people’s assets from some high costs of medical care. Business owners know their companies should provide good coverage associated with this subject. It’s actually considered the second largest expense for companies, after the salaries.


Managing health insurance the right way is key to administrate costs while adding value to the plans for your employees. 


After a company signs a co-employment agreement with a PEO, employees will have access to the same health plan offered to all the businesses that have signed co-employment agreements with the PEO. 


Previous paragraph means that your employees can have access to health plans that are usually expensive for small or mid-sized businesses to offer, and this is because there’s a big amount of employees to absorb the risk of anyone getting sick, or having some other issue related with health.



Health insurance definition in simple words
