Group Health Benefits for Cannabis Businesses

What are the Group Health Benefits Available to Cannabis Businesses?

Group Health benefits are a health insurance policy that provides health benefits to the employees of your business. Each employee will receive insurance at a reduced price because the risk of the insurer is spread evenly across all of the members of the group. We offer health benefits as well as vision and dental plans for companies of all sizes. We offer plans with providers such as: Health Net, Blue Cross, Sharp, Kaiser, and More.

What are the benefits of having Group Health?

While Group Health plans are advantageous for a number of reasons, its main benefit is that it spreads risk across a group of individuals insured under the policy. This keeps premiums low for each member of the group. It also makes it easier for insurers to manage risk due to a clear indication of who the policy is covering.

Tips for Choosing Health Insurance for Your Cannabis Business

Finding the right health insurance plan for your employees can be challenging without the right guidance. Let’s take a look at the top tips for choosing health insurance for cannabis businesses.

Talk with Your Employees

Spending time with your broker and your employees will help you get the information you need to put together a plan that provides the right network and coverage for your employees.  As the business owner you can be a part of this conversation or leave it up to your broker and HR department.

Don't Focus Soley on Price

Avoid the frame of mind of focusing on the cheapest insurance plans you can find. Focus on coverage options and how long the policy will last; after that, you can focus on the premium you’ll be paying.

Find a Good Insurance Broker

There are numerous reasons why you should work with an insurance broker. However, the time and effort you’ll save by working with one is the most compelling reason. Insurance brokers will ensure you’re compliant with the right laws, help you navigate the seemingly endless stacks of paperwork, help you implement your policy, and tailor the perfect Group Health benefits for your business.
