How are costs split between the employer and the employee?
Usually, an employer is required to split health insurance costs right down the middle, covering 50% of the employee’s monthly premium; however, different states and insurance companies have different minimum employer contribution levels. In the case of the 50/50 split, the employee is responsible for the remainder of his or her own premium and then covers the full premium for any of his or her dependants. It is up to the employer to decide whether or not to cover more than the minimum contribution. While completing an application with the insurance company of your choice, you will have the opportunity to change our websiteýs default setting of the minimum contribution and specify your level of contribution for your employees and their dependents.
