Before You Decide On Health Insurance Get A Second Opinion
With the assistance of TMA Insurance Trust, practice owners may be able to access special waivers that give you more options and can even help control the cost of health insurance for yourself, your family and potentially, your staff. This offer is only available to practice owners with a Tax ID number and least one full time employee.
Many physicians prefer the flexibility, convenience and coverage of a PPO plan. In Texas PPOs are only available in the group market. However, with our assistance and these special waivers, a solo or small practice owner could effectively create a “group of one” and just enroll themselves and their family in a group PPO plan.
Your employees could also receive this coverage, but the practice will not be required to pay for their coverage. Even if none of the employees take the coverage, you can enroll in the group PPO plan.
Partners and LLCs filing as a partnership with no employees may also be eligible for group coverage for themselves and their families. To qualify, a physician needs to provide partnership documentation or the company's Scheduled K-1 (form 1065) If this is your situation, please select the Partnership/LLC option on the submission form.

If you also provide health insurance for your staff, TMA Insurance Trust can help make sure you are getting what you’re paying for. With the waivers, owners of smaller practices can have the freedom to determine how many employees you can afford to cover and how much your practice will contribute toward their premiums.
All practice owners, regardless of size, will receive a host of added services that remove much of the burden of administering a health insurance plan. We will help enroll all your staff and dependents, cancel employees if they leave your office, distribute temporary ID cards and policy information, assist with billing, as well as advocate for you throughout the year if claims or customer service issues arise. All these added services are provided at no extra cost to you or your practice.
