What Would Dayna Do ... about offering health insurance for dental practice employees?

Issue 12

In this installment of What Would Dayna Do?, Dayna Johnson answers a couple of questions from a dental office manager based in Michigan.

In this installment of What Would Dayna Do?, Dayna Johnson answers a couple of questions from a dental office manager based in Michigan.

The office manager writes, "Dear Dayna, I would like some advice on a human resources issue. What are the rules on giving employees health insurance if they already have it under their spouse? Also, what are the rules about a leave of absence? How do we average hours for benefits when an employee has been on medical leave the year before?"

To help answer the questions, Dayna calls upon the expertise of Andrew Llama of HRForHealth.com. He says that he hears the question about spouse and health insurance often and reminds viewers that the rules for health insurance are governed by federal law and state law. He says, "Although you are not required to provide health insurance to your employees, if you have less than 50 employees, you must provide it to all employees if you have a group health insurance plan to avoid any potential discrimination claims."
