Nevada small business health insurance regulations

Nevada health insurance companies must sell small group health insurance to any small business. Also, small businesses of more than 2 but less the 50 must be offered the same Nevada small business health insurance policies that are sold to other small businesses.

If you qualify, your company must also meet minimum participation requirements set by your Nevada health insurance company. Unless you meet the minimum level of participation your Nevada health insurance company requires, your policy can be terminated.

Also, the owner of a small business may also be required to pay a certain amount toward each employee's premiums before the insurance company agress to sell the group a Nevada small business health insurance policy.

On a different note, it is legal for Nevada health insurance companies to charge higher premiums for an Nevada small business health insurance policy due to the group's health status, age, gender, and other factors. However, there are limits to how much policy prices can vary based on these health factors.

As with individual health insurance, illness can not be used as grounds for terminating Nevada small business health insurance.

Self-employed Nevada health insurance

States handle health insurance for the self-employed differently. In Nevada, if you are the sole employee and owner of a business, you can not purchase an Nevada small business health insurance policy. If you have more than one employee, you are more than likely eligible to purchase Nevada small business health insurance.

Otherwise, you should purchase an individual Nevada health insurance policy. Although you will be solely responsible for purchasing your health insurance, there is one great advantage.

As a self-employed business owner, you are eligible to deduct a portion of your Nevada health insurance premiums from your taxes. If you itemize your tax deduction, up to 80% of your premiums can be deducted.
