This type of insurance is required if you have W2 employees, and compliance is heavily enforced.

If your organization’s insurance policies don’t include worker’s compensation, it’s imperative that you purchase coverage as soon as possible.

A Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) policy puts the majority of decisions for a patient’s care plan into the hands of a primary care provider (PCP).

Give your staff lower out-of-pocket medical costs with an HMO plan. Get started by receiving your quote now.
A Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) health plan grants your employees more flexibility when it comes to their medical care, allowing them to see any in-network healthcare provider without a referral. However, since the patient is given the freedom to decide the course of their treatment, a PPO tends to be costlier than an HMO due to added risk. If you have staff members that require specialist services, a PPO is definitely a better option, as it gives them more freedom of choice when it comes to managing their care.

If your business operations have the potential to negatively impact the environment, your typical liability and property insurance packages won’t protect you from liability.

Any sort of operation that uses any chemicals that are unsafe for the environment should invest in this type of coverage. Some examples include dry cleaners, hair salons, mechanics, or any companies that use herbicide or fertilizer.
