It is time to renew the annual health insurance policy for employee coverage in the medical practice where you serve as administrator.

The practice covers 80% of the premium regardless if it is for employee only, employee and spouse, or family.
The practice also offers:
A Prescription plan which covers brand name/first generation medications, dental plan through Delta Dental (nominal cost), and vision plan through VSP (nominal cost)
Currently 60 employees including the doctors are covered. Of these, 30 have family coverage, 20 employee/spouse, and 10 single coverage.
For the past three years, the premium costs to the practice have gone up by 12%, 13.5%, and 15%.
While the doctors want to continue to provide health insurance coverage for their employees, they have clearly stated that they cannot afford another double digit increase this year.
