How much do I have to contribute toward my employees’ insurance and am I required to pay for their family members?
Generally, insurance companies require a minimum contribution of at least 50% of the employee premium or a minimum of $100/month. Employers are not required to pay for any portion of family members’ premiums. Contribution requirements vary by insurance company. A provision of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act also allows for an annual Special Open Enrollment Period where employer contributions are not required.
