MEC Plans

preventive & wellness services


It pays to be compliant...

Since provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) were implemented in 2016, employers with 50 or more full-time (or equivalent) employees are required to provide at least a Minimum Essential Coverage group health benefit plan to avoid the $2,000 per employee tax for non-compliance.

To address this need, Bridgewell Health provides two plan designs to meet the minimum essential coverage required services for employers in search of an affordable, ACA-compliant solution.  Our MEC Benefit Program provides two plans that meet the requirements of MinimumEs sential Coverage (MEC), while delivering tangible benefits designed to promote proactive, preventive health engagement for your employees and their families. In addition, our plan rates are available with a 36 month rate lock to help employers stabilize costs!

Whether implemented as a stand-alone MEC plan or offered alongside a Bridgewell Gap or Limited Benefit Plan, our MEC plans provide employers with an expanded set of options with regards to ACA-compliance. In addition, if you offer our MEC plans alongside a major medical plan that meets the requirements for Minimum Value, you can also eliminate the possibility of the $3,000 tax penalty in the event that an eligible employee purchases insurance through the Marketplace.


Our MEC program provides plans that meet the requirements of Minimum Essential Coverage (MEC), with a 36-month rate lock to assist employers in strategically addressing costs over time.
