Health Insurance Shopping

Individuals & Families

The Texas Bar Private Insurance Exchange is a multi-carrier private exchange designed for State Bar of Texas members and their staff and dependents. Available to both individuals and employer groups, the exchange offers a wide range of health insurance choices and more.

Employer Groups (below 5)

As a small employer group, chances are you fall into one of the following predicaments:

  • You provide a small group health plan for employees and the cost keeps getting higher and higher each year.
  • Costs are too high. You don’t offer group coverage, telling your employees to fend for themselves.

Either way, there’s a new alternative. Under the Affordable Care Act, businesses with fewer than 50 full-time equivalent employees will not be penalized for not providing group health insurance to their employees. An alternative concept to offering group insurance is for small employers to provide a way for their employees to purchase their own individual coverage on the public or private exchange.

Beginning with effective dates of January 1, 2014 and thereafter, all health insurance plans available through the exchange cant turn you or your employees down or charge you more because you are sick or have a health condition. So you don’t have to worry about one of your employees being denied coverage.

Private Health Exchange for 5+ EE Employer Groups

Just as every employee is unique, so are their benefit needs. Employers now have a way to address the different requirements of each employee, while also managing the company’s bottom line. That means cost control and predictability for the employer, and greater  involvement and choice for the employee.

Employers create a private exchange account, choose the benefit plan options to make available, set up a defined contribution strategy, and allow employees to shop for their own benefits.
