A physician’s eligibility for a group PPO plan has historically relied on how many employees they have in their practice. TMA Insurance Trust has researched how to make this preferred coverage available to independent physicians who practice in a partnership without W2 employees. Special options may help you obtain group PPO health insurance for just yourself and your family.
Small Practice, Big Benefits
Individual PPO health insurance plans are no longer available in Texas. But that doesn’t mean an HMO is your only option as an independent physician. TMA Insurance Trust works hard to find ways to bring affordable, comprehensive health insurance coverage to all Texas physicians–not just larger practices.
Here’s what we’ve uncovered:
- Physicians who are in a partnership with no W2 employees may be eligible for group PPO health insurance. Partnership documentation would need to be provided, as well as the company’s SS4 or Schedule K-1 (Form 1065).
- Do you own a business with your spouse, or do you own a business and employ your spouse as a W-2 wage employee? If so, we may be able to qualify your business for group coverage even without partnership documentation.
- Practice owners with staff on their own health coverage (spouse’s plan or another provider) can get “Group of One” PPO health insurance just for themselves and their family.
- Practice owners can upgrade their personal coverage to a group PPO plan while offering their employees other options.
