Are small employers required to offer health insurance?

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

Employers with fewer than 50 full-time employees or full-time equivalent employees are not required to provide health insurance to their employees. (Please note: To help businesses transition to the new regulations, the federal government has made several exceptions for 2015 only. In 2015, only employers with 100 or more full-time employees and full-time equivalent employees are required to offer coverage.).

Small employers may be eligible for tax credits for offering health coverage. For more information, please see What Small Employers Need to Know.
