Insurance Partnership Income Ceilings Increased

The Insurance Partnership, the state and federally funded program that helps small businesses (including the self-employed) and their qualified workers pay for company-sponsored health insurance have been increased.

Check this pamphlet from the Partnership for more information and to see if you qualify.

If qualified for the Insurance Partnership, both the business and employee receive assistance paying for their company-sponsored health insurance.  Businesses can receieve up to $1,000 per year for each eligible employee, while the employee’s monthly premiums can be reduced to as little as $27 per month (depending on income level).
