  • Group Health Insurance:

Fully Insured Plans: The employer pays a premium to an insurance company, which assumes the risk of providing healthcare coverage.

Self-Funded (or Self-Insured) Plans: The employer assumes the financial risk of providing healthcare benefits, often with a third-party administrator managing the plan.

  • Health Maintenance Organization (HMO):

Requires employees to choose a primary care physician (PCP) and get referrals to see specialists.

Emphasizes preventive care and covers services within a network of providers.

  • Preferred Provider Organization (PPO):

Offers more flexibility by allowing employees to see any healthcare provider, but provides higher benefits for using in-network providers.

Employees can see specialists without referrals.

  • Point of Service (POS):

Combines elements of HMO and PPO plans.

Requires a PCP for referrals to specialists but offers some out-of-network coverage at higher costs.

  • Exclusive Provider Organization (EPO):

Similar to PPO but does not cover out-of-network care except in emergencies.

Typically, no need for referrals to see specialists.

  • High-Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) with Health Savings Account (HSA):

Features lower premiums and higher deductibles.

Employees can save pre-tax money in an HSA to pay for qualified medical expenses.

  • Flexible Spending Account (FSA):

Allows employees to set aside pre-tax dollars for out-of-pocket medical expenses.

Funds must be used within the plan year or a grace period.

  • Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA):

Employer-funded plan that reimburses employees for qualified medical expenses.

Unused funds may roll over to the next year, depending on plan rules.

  • Dental and Vision Plans:

Separate plans providing coverage for dental and vision care, which can be bundled with major medical plans or offered independently.

Each type of plan offers different levels of flexibility, cost, and coverage, allowing businesses to choose the best fit for their employees’ needs and their financial situation.
