Stop thinking that you “must” have everyday insurance, and go with global coverage only. Works just fine.

Find yourself a reputable insurance agent from your friends in business who are involved in insurance purchasing. Or interview several yourself. You can change agents at any time. An experienced agent knows the market and the tax advantaged options for your business.

Picking an insurance policy may be the least of it. Small business owners that we have interviewed in the past couple of months report huge increases coming in their policies that are prompting them to rethink employee coverage.

2010 could be like the “Perfect Storm” for health insurance for small business with surging rates and continuing low business revenues.
