The Difference Between QSEHRA and Small Group Health Insurance

More than 60% of employers say offering health insurance has the ability to not only make happier employees, but increase team productivity. As a small business owner, offering medical, dental, and vision can be done through two possible options: Small Group Health Insurance (SGHI) or Qualified Small Employer Health Reimbursement Arrangement (QSEHRA).

To break it down, if you have the budget and time to invest in your employees, small group health insurance is the way to go.  However, if saving money is essential and a high priority for your business, QSEHRA is the better choice.  To learn more about your options and see a side by side comparison, read the full article below.
