If your business is located in New York City or Long Island and haven't looked at Healthfirst as part of your employee benefit package you are missing out on the best value in health insurance for small business and their employees. Most small businesses in New York City and Long Island are using Oxford as their sole health carrier. Oxford is an excellent health plan but can be very expensive for the Freedom and Liberty plans. HealthFirst is a great option to add to your small business health insurance selection. You can offer your employees a $0 deductible plan with a very good local network of providers and hospitals at a 30% discount compared to Oxford Freedom and Liberty plans. You can accomplish this with either a stand alone Healthfirst plan or by using Healthpass as a small business exchange. Healthfirst includes in their network NYU, Sloan Kettering, Mount Sinai, Maimonides, Montefiore, Northwell and Westchester Medical hospital systems. Your employees will thank you for providing Healthfirst as an affordable $0 deductible health insurance option. Of course it won't be right for all employees, but the employees who want or need an Oxford plan, can choose to keep that as well. I highly recommend looking at what Healthfirst has to offer, they include acupuncture and Gym reimbursement in their plans and if you select their Pro Plus plans your employees will also get good dental and vision benefits.
