Please use these applications moving forward in order to help us process your groups as quick and smooth as possible. Below you will find the following:

Husband/Wife Groups:
UHC Standalone and OBM will follow suit with medical when determining eligibility of Groups consisting of Husband and Wife. The passage of the Affordable necessitated a focus on federal (as opposed to state) requirements for determining what entities qualify to purchase a group health plan. Under ERISA in order to qualify as a “group health plan” an employer must have employees other than just the sole owner and the owner’s spouse who are eligible to purchase coverage under the plan documents.
