U. S. Small Business Administration releases report on health insurance. (Headlines).

The U.S. Small Business Administration released a report in January that outlined the differences in costs between small group health plans and larger businesses that provide health plans. According to the study, small group plans are more costly to administer than larger business plans. The report also indicated that the administrative costs for insurers of small group plans ranged from 33 to 37 percent of claims, while large companies' self-insured plans represented 5 to 11 percent of claims.

SBA Chief Council for Advocacy Thomas Sullivan urged Congress and President Bush to help make health care more affordable to small employers, citing association health plans as one way to do so. For a copy of the report, visit www.sba.gov/advo.
