Designed for The Small Group Market

It can be a struggle to fit small group clients into carriers’ underwriting guidelines. Whether they’re too new (start-ups), don’t meet participation (in a dual-carrier scenario), or are too remote (out-of-state employees), carrier rules often exclude small groups that don’t fit the standard. When you’re prospecting for new clients, you need a solution that’s flexible and designed for small groups.

Covered California for Small Business (CCSB) offers:

  • No late fees or admin fees.
  • No annual recertification.
  • Only one employee must reside in CA (as long as the group is based in CA).
  • No carrier participation rule; just 70% overall participation after valid waivers.
  • Flexible waiting periods.
  • No budget surprises - defined employer contribution option.
  • Employee choice of carrier and plan within 2 metal-levels.
