4 1 How to choose insurance. 3 key decisions. 1) See if your business is eligible. You ll need to meet three requirements before buying a SHOP group health plan. Principal employee work site. Your business must have an employee office or work site in the state where you re buying coverage. Number of employees. You must have 50 or fewer full-time equivalent employees (FTE). Get help calculating how many FTEs you have at healthcare.gov Offer health insurance to all FTEs. You ll need to offer coverage to any employee that works an average of 30 or more hours a week. 2) Choose coverage options. You can offer your employees one plan or a choice of plans. There are four categories (metal levels) of plans. Bronze Silver Gold Platinum Monthly Premium Co-pay (cost per visit/drug) Is this plan category right for you? $ $$ $$$ $$$$ $$$$ $$$ $$ $ You rarely see a doctor, and you re willing to pay a higher co-pay when you do. You want to balance monthly premium, co-pay and costs. There are several of choices in between the bronze and platinum plans. You see doctors more often and are willing to pay higher monthly premiums to lower your co-pay. 3) See if you qualify for a tax credit. If you have fewer than 25 full-time equivalent employees (FTEs), you could be eligible for the small business health care tax credit worth up to 50% of your premium costs. Plus, you could also deduct the remaining part of your premium on your taxes. 4 Open Enrollment

5 Additional Considerations. Wide variety of coverage and premiums. You control coverage options and how much of your employees monthly premiums you pay. There are a variety of plans and options that offer the flexibility to customize your employees insurance. Saving you time and money.

That s because we negotiate with in-network doctors and hospitals to keep costs down. Easy access to care.

If you simply have a question or need advice, call our NurseLine to talk with registered nurses 24/7.

Your employees can use tools to manage their health and costs. Through online resources, mobile apps and myuhc.com, your employees will find: 24/7 access to benefit info. Health care providers.

6 2 Compare plans UnitedHealthcare Michigan SHOP Marketplace UnitedHealthcare Navigate and Choice Plus Plans (1-50 Employees) Navigate and Choice Plus plans are smart options for cost conscious employers looking to offer quality care to their employees. With a Navigate plan, your employees will choose a network primary care provider (PCP) to manage their care and refer them to specialists, if needed. There is no coverage for seeing out of network providers. Choice Plus plans give your employees the freedom to visit any doctor, clinic or hospital in this large national network without a referral or choosing a primary care provider. Your employees can also go out of network, but they will likely pay more for covered services.
