If you have a small business (1-50 employees), you're not required to offer your employees health insurance, but if you do, you might qualify for tax credits.
Where to buy a health plan
If you have a small business with 1-50 employees, you have several options:
Washington state’s Exchange - Small businesses also can choose a health plan through Washington Healthplanfinder Business (www.wahbexchange.org).
Association health plans - Small businesses can buy health insurance through an association.
Don’t buy a health plan - You can decide to not buy group health insurance and let employees buy their own individual health plans.
