Health Care Reform Tax Credit

Looking for a tax credit for your small business? Qualified businesses with fewer than 25 employees could get up to a 35% tax credit toward health insurance as a result of health care reform.3

Let us show you how much your company could save.

Give your employees the ability to choose between two plans for the benefits that best suit their needs. All you have to do is establish your "base" plan and choose among our many options a second, richer plan for employees who need or want added benefits.

  • Fixed contribution - Set your fixed dollar amount or fixed percentage for the low or "base" option. Employees who want the "higher," or richer benefit plan can choose to "buy up" to that plan. Your cost stays the same
  • Customize your coverage -- We know business needs change. With High-Lo Fex, you get the capability to adjust your plan choices year to year without changing insurers
