If you’re a small business with fewer than 50 full-time and full-time equivalent (FTE) employees, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) does not require you to offer health insurance to employees. However, many smaller businesses offer employee benefits as part of their employee recruitment and retention strategy.

Small businesses do not have to offer coverage to employees’ dependents either, although many do – again, to help attract and retain top talent.

You also do not have to offer benefits to part-time workers (those averaging less than 30 hours per week) or seasonal workers.


Depending on the health plan or health insurance exchange you select, you may have a choice of a fixed percentage amount (50% to 100%) or a fixed dollar amount for each employee. If an employee selects a plan that costs more than you are contributing, he or she simply pays the difference. And, at renewal, you have the option to change your contribution – giving you control over your costs for another year.
