Pres White represents many of the top group health insurance companies providing group health insurance to small and large businesses in the tri-state area.  Our marketplace is dominated by Health Maintenance Organization (HMO), Point of Service (POS) and Participating Provider Organization (PPO) plan designs. The central theme is using a network of participating doctors to coordinate the plan.  The biggest difference between the three types is the necessity of a primary care provider referral and the inclusion or exclusion of an out of network benefit.

To qualify for group medical insurance –

In New York, New Jersey and Connecticut in order to qualify for group medical insurance you must have a business domiciled in the applicable state with at least two eligible employees, and you have not have been cancelled by another group medical carrier for non payment.  An eligible employee is one who works a minimum required hours per week and at least minimum wage.  In New York, this minimum is 20 hours, in New Jersey it is 25 and in Connecticut it is 30.  Partners and Business owners who receive distributions from the business on a K-1 or 1120 S form are also considered full time eligible employees.  Partners and owners do not have a minimum wage requirement.
