How Do MEC Plans Work?

 
 

Minimum Essential Coverage (MEC)

The Affordable Care Act states that all individuals must have health benefits and all employers with 50 or more full-time employees must provide coverage to all eligible employees or they are subject to fines/penalties. This can be known as "pay or play" or employer shared responsibility. We offer Minimum Essential Coverage plans which both of these penalties are satisfied for the employee and the employer. Our plans are substantially less expensive than traditional medical insurance and serve as a low cost solution for most companies.

Supplemental Health Insurance

Employers are looking for solutions to help offset the increases in health insurance premiums, while still providing quality insurance coverage for employees. Therefore, they are shifting more of the costs, including higher deductibles, coinsurance and co-payments, to employees and relying on other resources, such as supplemental carriers, for help.

Supplemental health products provide benefits to employees to help offset the larger financial exposures for out-of-pocket medical and non-medical expenses related to events such as hospital confinement, outpatient surgery, diagnostic tests resulting from a covered accident or covered sickness.


Indemnity Plans

Our indemnity plans are designed to provide you the coverage you need at a price you can afford. They are underwritten to be extremely cost effective without neglecting coverage levels. Indemnity plans allow you to direct your own health care and visit almost any doctor or hospital you like. The insurance company then pays a set portion of your total charges. Indemnity plans are also referred to as "fee-for-service" plans.
