How much does the employer have to contribute to an employee's health benefits?

The employer typically contributes at least 50% of the employee's health premium.

Every situation is different, but most insurance carriers will require the employer to be responsible for at least 50% of the employee's premium. The employer would not be expected to pay for other family members added to the plan under that employee. 

The ACA requires employers with 50 or more full-time employees to offer benefits or pay a fee. If you'd like to explore adding benefits at your company or you have health coverage through OMS PEO and need help, call 1-800-329-9778.
