In essence a group health insurance policy is an insurance cover applied for by the employer, with Insurance Company. The employer would usually have to pay only a part of the premium
(Unlike earlier when 100% employee benefits were prevalent) of the group medical insurance policy. To counter this expense to the employee, Congress passed Section 125 so that the
employee pays the expenses, on a pre-tax basis, for specified benefits. The employee’s net expenses for the group health insurance cover, and for various other benefits, have been
greatly reduced as a result.

Group Medical Insurance Policies:

* It is a well-known fact that an employee values a group health insurance cover and its benefits. It is viewed by the employee as the second-best thing next to monetary compensation, and
gives the employer the added advantage of being able to employ and retain the best in the business.

* As an employer, you may not have purchased medical insurance cover for yourself. Do you know that by buying medical insurance cover via a company, you would be getting better rates than if you were to purchase an individual medical insurance policy?

* Additionally, a group health insurance policy also offers your employees and yourself a special bonanza in the form of tax incentives. For instance, as an employer you could reduce
payroll taxes, by offering your employees group health insurance as part of a whole compensation package, thereby deducting 100% of the premiums that you would have had to
pay on a qualifying group health insurance plan. Better still, your employees, using pre-tax dollars, would be able to pay their part of the monthly premium.
