Group health insurance is fundamentally insurance cover on a collective scale, which is normally given at a discounted rate by insurers due to the bulk sale element and the fact that they can spread the risk amongst those insured.
For many companies, group health insurance is one of the most important benefits they offer their employees due to its tax efficiency to both the employer and employee. The employers benefit because they obtain a tax deduction for providing health insurance for their employees who in turn benefit because the compensation they receive is untaxed.
