Group Insurance

We hear a lot about group insurance but we don’t hear about the basics. So let’s jump right in and start with what is group insurance? Group insurance is insurance coverage that a business can buy to cover health related charges incurred by its employees. The coverage usually provides financial reimbursement for medical and dental costs but can also have additional provisions such as coverage for disability, life, travel and critical care insurance.
