Group Health Insurance

  • Generally provided by and at least partially funded by an employer. 
  • The employee usually has little or no choice of features. 
  • The principal advantage of group insurance is that coverage is usually available to newly hired employees without medical questions, making group insurance a good option for covering pre-existing conditions like Parkinson's.
  • Coverage typically ends when the employee’s job ends.  But there are options to continue coverage at your expense.  (See COBRA and HIPAA.)
