Montana Small Business Health Insurance

With an entire state population of under one million, Montana may be "big sky" country, but small businesses have found that locating their business in this state is both relaxing and full of opportunity. There are plenty of small businesses in Montana, and plenty of room to expand. In fact, Montana's economy is dominated by the small entity. The majority of these small employers have ten workers or less. With such a small workforce, employee loyalty is crucial. Yet only thirty percent of these small businesses offered health insurance to their employees in 2002. Fortunately, insurance carriers in Montana are working hard to help small businesses attract loyal employees by offering them plans that are affordable and comprehensive, in accordance with the state's insurance regulations.
