Small Business’s – EmployER Medical Plans
are now guaranteed coverage with just one common law employee (AB 1083), who isn’t a spouse. No medical questions are asked! The law allows up to 30% discounts for participation in wellness programs along with full tax deduction for the employer premiums (IRC Section 106) and no taxable income to your employees. If you are making your employees pay a portion of the premium, that too can be deductible for you and employees under a IRC Section 125 plan.
Before Health Care Reform – ACA – Obamacare we had AB 1672 (1992) where two employees were required, but husband & wife counted. Medical History and claims could make a difference in premiums of up to 20% under the Rating Adjustment Factor (RAF) system. Sole Proprietors, C Corps and husband & wife partnerships with no common law employees can still get guaranteed coverage in the Individual market, but must wait for Open Enrollment or Special Enrollment, like when their Pre ACA plan renews and they get bumped out. Their premiums (free quotes) can still be tax deductible, line 27 – 1040 or a business tax return.

California’s small business market in 2014 dropped by 11% to 2.1 million enrollees. Meanwhile, enrollment in the individual market increased by 47% to 2.18 million during the same period. The sharp uptick in the individual market largely was driven by Covered California and the availability of subsidies to help pay for premiums for plans purchased through the exchange.
