Marketplace Health Insurance

Jim offers individual health insurance and group health insurance which means any company that has two or more employees, or could even be a husband or wife. Their specialty is in the small group marketplace, which would be 2-50 enrollees. But they are also licensed in the large group marketplace, which would be 50 plus which is a different market. The focus is to stick in the small group marketplace where they need 75% participation. This means if you had 10 full-time employees, you need 25 or more hours to be registered as a full-time employee.

If you have 10 full-time employees and 5 have insurance through their spouse (or have it through their parents or on Medicare), they would only need 3 of the other 5 to be compliant. That would mean you're 8 out of 10. Valid waivers count as a good number. If you don't have a valid waiver, it counts as a refusal. And refusals count as a bad number. A lot of time, refusals are employees that don't want health insurance, whether they can't afford it or something of that magnitude.
