Your employees need health care coverage. You need a plan that works for you.

As a small business owner, you need to find health insurance that you and your employees can count on. BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina has been a trusted name in the health insurance industry for more than 65 years.

The Business BlueEssentialsSM  plans offer Gold, Silver and Bronze plans. The benefits of each plan vary to offer different levels of coverage.

What are the Differences Between the BlueEssentials Gold, Silver and Bronze Plans?

Each plan covers the same set of minimum essential health benefits. While the range of benefits is the same among the plans, the value of the benefits will vary. For example, copayments, coinsurance or deductibles vary between each plan. 

Small Business Tax Credit Information

The Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as the health care reform law, provides a Small Business Health Care Tax Credit. If you have fewer than 25 full-time employees making an average of about $50,000 a year or less and you pay at least 50 percent of your full-time employees’ premiums, you may qualify for a tax credit.
