One of the cornerstones of any church is giving back, but that can mean more than taking care of the community. It also means focusing inward to acknowledge the employees who work tirelessly behind the scenes to keep the mission running smoothly. Although your staff members will tell you that the chance to serve the church and its people is a great blessing, it’s also important to focus on the more practical benefits. If your church has more than one employee, you’re eligible to apply for group health insurance in all 50 states. How much it costs depends on a number of factors, such as the insurance carrier, the type of plan (HMO, PPO, etc.), your location, the size of the provider network, and your employee demographics. Many small businesses start their search for a provider via either a broker or one of the public Small Business Health Options, or SHOP, marketplaces.
