Leveraging the Benefits of Bay Area Health Insurance and Covered California for Small Business


Choosing the right health insurance is crucial for the health and financial well-being of both employers and employees. This choice becomes even more significant for small businesses who may face limited options. However, the collaboration of Bay Area Health Insurance and Covered California for Small Business (CCSB) presents a unique, user-friendly, and cost-effective solution for small business health insurance needs.

Bay Area Health Insurance prides itself on its deep understanding of the complexities of health insurance and its dedication to customer service. When you work with Bay Area Health Insurance, you are choosing a partner committed to guiding you through the health insurance landscape and ensuring your needs are met.

Similarly, Covered California for Small Business is specifically designed for small businesses. This health insurance marketplace caters to small businesses with 100 or fewer full-time equivalent employees, providing access to competitively priced health insurance plans from private insurance companies. This combination of choice and competitive pricing ensures that employers can find a plan that fits their needs and budget.

CCSB offers four defined levels of coverage - Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. Employers can compare and select group health plans from a variety of brand-name health insurance carriers, further tailoring the plan to their needs. You, as an employer, have the power to define the amount you will contribute towards your employees' premium while allowing them the freedom to choose a health plan that suits their needs within your defined level(s) of coverage.

The advantages of choosing CCSB are numerous. Offering health insurance can give your business a competitive edge by attracting and retaining top talent. It contributes to keeping your employees healthy, happy, and productive, ultimately reducing absenteeism and increasing productivity. With CCSB, employers have control, and employees have choice, a combination that's rare in the health insurance marketplace.

What sets CCSB apart are the additional financial incentives available. Eligible small businesses can access a federal tax credit to help offset the cost of providing health insurance. Businesses with fewer than 25 full-time-equivalent employees and paying an average annual salary of less than $54,000* may be eligible for this credit. Businesses with fewer than 10 full-time-equivalent employees with wages averaging less than $26,000* per year may be eligible for the maximum tax credit amount.

Combining the services of Bay Area Health Insurance with the resources and benefits of CCSB offers an unmatched insurance solution for small businesses.
