Hi 4723, there are several things that you can do.  The fact that your
employees work in other states doesn't really matter, but the network
of the provider you choose will need to be accessible by your
employees who live in other states.  The actual plan will be purchased
in the state in which your business resides permanently.  I would
begin by contacting a health insurance broker that sells insurance in
your state.  They can offer quotes from several companies that are
available in your state.  You can check them out by going to your
state insurance commissioner's web site.  Since you don't have a
relationship with a broker you might consider interviewing several to
see who you are most comfortable with.  They will all be able to give
you a best rates quote based on a census of your employees for the
companies they represent.  This will give you a starting point.  You
might also contact your local chamber of commerce to find out who they
recommend and who other business owners in your area are using.  This
will help you find an association as well.  Hope that helps.
