Healthcare practitioners and small business owners have many things in common. They provide necessary services, have many responsibilities and face multiple challenges in managing the demands of the business and those they serve. Healthcare insurance and payment acceptance are two areas of concern that can sometimes be complicated – but help is available.
The health insurance market has been reformed by the Affordable Care Act. It includes a number of provisions to put American consumers back in charge of their health coverage and care to ensure they receive value for their premium dollars. The law cracks down on unreasonable health insurance premiums and holds insurance companies accountable for unjustified premium increases.
The U.S. Small Business Association (SBA), the Department of Health Human and Services, and Small Business Majority have teamed up for a free weekly webinar series where small employers can learn the basics of the Affordable Care Act and what it means for their organization and employees. Topics covered include cost containment, the Small Business Health Care Tax Credit, the new Health Insurance Marketplace, and Employer Shared Responsibility.
The following is a schedule of upcoming webinars in May and June, as well as links that will enable you to register. Since the same general information will be covered in each session, choose the webinar that best fits your schedule.
