Aside from Health Maintenance Organization plans (HMOs) and
Preferred Provider Organization plans, (PPOs), Health Net of California offers
Elect Open Access products. EOA products
offer HMO coverage as well as self-referral access to specialist in the PPO
HMOs are the cheaper route to go for an employer who is
looking to insure his or her employees. However,
PPO plans are offered because they allow employees to choose out-of-network
providers (doctors, specialists, hospitals) whereas HMOs do not. PPOs are ideal for employees who use a family
doctor before they were given the option of an employee-based health coverage
plan and the doctor is not in the plan’s network. Health Net’s exclusive EOA plans can be
chosen between an HMO tier or a PPO tier.

Kaiser offers employers to choose from a wide range of small
business insurance plans for Californians.
They include copayment plans, HSA-qualified deductible HMO plans, and
deductible HMO plans with Health Reimbursement Arrangement plans, Dental plans
and Chiropractic plans.
Copayment plans are out-of-pocket costs with no annual
deductible for medical services. HSAs
are Health Savings Accounts and they provide the employee with a health-based
savings account where they can allot their money towards copayments or save it
for future long-term health care. HRAs,
or Health Reimbursement Arrangement plans are arrangements paired with High
Deductible Health Plans (HDHP). With
these, employers decided how much money can be rolled over each year and can
decide if they want to cap contributions to the account.

Aetna provides members with Personal Health Records (PHR)
which provides employers a complete file on each employee’s health
background. Between the PHR, and
communicating with employees on what they want out of their insurance plan,
employers can find the best plan that fits the needs of all employees. Medical underwriting in California is
allowed, so instead of each premium being based on the individual, a flat-rate
premium is given throughout the group plan.
Knowing this, researching before is recommended so the employer can
optimize their tax deductions. Tax
deductions are based on how much employers spend on health plans.
