Applications – Small Business

The process to enroll your small business in a group medical, dental, vision, life, short-term or long-term care plan involves completing applications.  The insurance companies require that an employer complete and submit an employer, or “master” application which includes information on the location of your business but also includes:

  • Which plans your company will offer employees (e.g., HMO, PPO, HSA, Platinum, Gold. Etc.);
  • how much the company will contribute towards the employees’ insurance and how much towards the employee’s dependent spouses and children; and,
  • how long a newly hired employee must wait before being able to enroll in the plan.

Employees must also complete applications for coverage.  This gives the insurance company information on the employee’s address and identifies which plan the employee wants.
