Are the eligibility requirements for group health insurance changing?

Yes!  October 1, 2010, in Washington State, one of the biggest criteria to qualify for a group health insurance plan changes from a minimum of two individuals to one.   This change is incredibly positive and you have to ask yourself:   How often does this happen in the health insurance arena!   For an individual business owner, like myself, this is a tremendous option and one that has me very happy.  I will now be able to move from an individual and family plan, which for those of us who have had to stay with this option, are relegated to high deductibles and limited coverage.    I can now purchase a group policy which will have richer benefits, lower deductible choices and prescription coverage.   My premiums will be higher, but we actually get something for the dollars spent.
