Small Business Health Plans

Choosing small group health insurance for your employees is not an easy decision for any small business owner. Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield understands you need a plan as unique as your business and your employees.

That's why we’ve built plans with the total person in mind. Our small business health plans offer whole person care with coverage options for medical, dental, vision, life and disability to groups that range from 2 to 50 employees, and 2 to 100 employees in Colorado.

Managing small business health insurance costs

If saving on health care costs is important to your business, Anthem has great options to choose from. Our standard fully-insured portfolio, along with other plans, offers flexible financial arrangements that provide the right mix of benefits and cost options to help give you a competitive edge.


Wide range of plans

Choose from a variety of small business health plans, including HMO, PPO, EPO, Consumer-Driven Health Plan (CDHP) and Health Savings Account-compatible plans. They cover all of the essential health benefits required by the Affordable Care Act (ACA), including emergencies, counseling services, preventive care and more.


Flexible funding options

Manage your costs with funding options designed so small businesses can realize the savings of larger groups by accessing lower costs and more predictable rates. Anthem Balanced Funding (ABF) provides a predictable health plan arrangement that gives employers more control and rewards them when employees are healthier than expected. A Multiple Employer Welfare Arrangement (MEWA) enables smaller employers to join together to share in the overall claims risk and offer employees health coverage with less worry.


In-network savings

By seeing doctors and hospitals in your plan’s network, you can take advantage of the significant discounts we’ve negotiated with them. Plus, they’re easy to find in our large nationwide network.


Bundling discounts

It pays to purchase more than one small group plan — dental, vision, life, disability and/or medical too.

  • Save up to 5% on dental premium when you purchase a new ACA dental plan along with vision, life and/or disability

  • Save up to 3% on your medical rates when you combine dental, vision, life and/or disability with a MEWA medical plan

  • Save on your ABF medical payments when you add dental, vision and/or life. Plus save up to 5% on your dental, vision and life premiums too

Bundling discounts vary by product purchased and state. Not all plans, products and discounts are available in all markets. Contact your Anthem representative for complete details.


Our plans were put together with you in mind.

Unlock the power of connected care

Anthem Whole Health Connection® offers an integrated approach to whole person care. By combining health care, pharmacy, dental, vision, life, disability and behavioral benefits, doctors can access your employees’ complete medical history to make more informed decisions. The more benefits that are integrated, the more complete the view and the savings will be.

We also provide dedicated support teams and tools to help coordinate care, instead of a complicated list of to-dos, referrals and prescriptions. And because there is no additional cost for Anthem Whole Health Connection, employers realize more value.


Personalized support every step of the way

Anthem Health Guide helps your employees find their way by simplifying the health care experience and providing a seamless transition from service to care.


Our guides are able to:

 
  • Connect employees to programs and needed support.

  • Spot medical gaps in care, such as routine exams and screenings.

  • Help employees save money on prescription drugs.

  • Compare costs, find in-network doctors and much more.
