Has the US Economic Crisis Affected Car Insurance Rates?

Group Health Insurance Policies Offer Buying Power

Group health insurance plans are health insurance policies that are jointly shared by members of a group or organization. Generally, group health insurance is purchased by an employer to cover all the employees. Employers either offer the group health insurance as benefit, or charge the employees a nominal fee.

Group health insurance offers the purchaser buying power which will result in lower health insurance premiums. Self Employed individuals do not qualify for group health insurance and therefore have to pay much more than individuals that buy into a group plan. There are many different types of group health insurance. Generally, the larger the “group” the more buying power you have and the lower the premiums. Other factors play a part in the final premium cost such as deductibles, co-pays and whether the plan is part of an HMO.
