Get more from your group health plan with additional benefits, tax savings, and help with ACA compliance

Offering group health insurance makes more sense now than ever. Affordable health insurance ranked first in a national survey asking employees which benefits would entice them to stay at their current job. That’s hardly surprising, as health insurance premiums continue to rise. For an average family, annual premiums reached over $18,000 in 2016. Rising rates hurt employers too, as they paid almost $13,000 per family toward that coverage.

When you work with Paychex Insurance Agency, you can provide a cost-effective group health insurance program that compares with what larger companies can offer — helping you recruit and keep talented employees. And with uncertainty surrounding Affordable Care Act (ACA) requirements, we can provide compliance assistance that gives you peace of mind.

Benefit acccounts

Offer employees competitive health insurance — and potentially save on taxes — with a flexible spending account (FSA), health savings account (HSA), and health reimbursement arrangement (HRA).

Section 125

Help your company and employees save on taxes by offering a premium only plan (POP) and a flexible spending account (FSA) to supplement your company’s group health insurance.

Voluntary benefits

We can help you determine which voluntary benefits (dental, vision, etc.) best fit the needs of your employees and your business, and then make them easier to manage.

ESR services

Get support with Affordable Care Act (ACA) compliance, including employer shared responsibility (ESR) provisions that may affect your business.
