Wyoming small business health insurance

All small businesses are eligible to purchase Wyoming small business health insurance. Also, if a small business has between 2 and 50 employees, Wyoming health insurance companies must offer them a health insurance policy with similar benefits as ones they've sold to other small businesses.

A small business must also meet minimum enrollment and contribution requirements or risk policy cancellation. In other words, Wyoming health insurance companies can require that a certain number of eligible employees purchase the Wyoming small business health insurance policy and that the employer contributes a specific amount toward his employee's premiums.

On the subject of price, the amount insurance companies can charge for Wyoming small business health insurance can be more due to the group's health status, but no other factor. Also, there are limits to how much the premiums can vary according to the group's health.

Finally, it is illegal for Wyoming health insurance companies to cancel an existing Wyoming small business health insurance policy on the basis of a illness.

Self-employed Wyoming health insurance

States have different rules for dealing with health insurance for the self-employed. In Wyoming, a self-employed individual is only eligible to purchase an individual health insurance policy.

Although a self-employed individual bears the extra burden of buying her own health insurance, she can benefit from a large tax deduction. As long as you itemize your deductions, part of your health insurance premiums can be claimed as an expense.
