How much time and money does it take for a new startup (50 employees) to fill out the paperwork to become a group for the purpose of negotiating for health insurance for their founders and employees?
I'm not sure if this is a purely exploratory question or if you're inferring that you're planning on navigating the group health insurance market without the assistance of a broker. If the latter, I'd caution against it for several reasons (which I'll omit for now for the sake of brevity).To get a group quote, generally all that's needed is an employee census. Some states apply a modifier to the rate depending on the overall health of the group members (for a very accurate quote, employees may need to fill out general health statements).Obtaining rates themselves can take a few minutes (for states like CA which don't have a significant health modifier) to several days.I suspect your cor question is the time/effort required once you've determined the most appropriate plan design for your company. This is variable depending on how cohesive your employee base is.Best case scenario - if all employees are in one location and available at the same time, I could bring an enrollment team and get all the paperwork done in the course of 1-3 hours depending on the size of your group. In the vast majority of cases, the employer's paperwork is typically around 6 pages of information, and the employee applications about 4-8 pages. Individually none of them take more than several minutes to complete.Feel free to contact me directly if you have specific questions or concerns.
