Many companies offer their workers group insurance, otherwise known as “employee benefits”. This type of insurance normally comes with health, dental and drug benefits, as well as life insurance and long-term disability (LTD) coverage.
However, smaller sized companies may not be able to afford a standard employee benefits package. Employee benefits offer extensive coverage for a wide variety of things, and as a result the cost of premiums may be outside of smaller budgets. In addition, group insurance premiums are routinely adjusted based on how many claims are made by employees. As a result, companies that make many claims may see their premiums increase to the point of being difficult to afford.
