The Affordable Care Act has many beneficial measures specifically for small businesses, including slowing premium cost growth and increased access to quality, affordable health insurance, said SBA officials.
SBA’s new web page, , breaks down the key provisions of the Act based on business size in the following categories: self-employed, fewer than 25 employees, fewer than 50 employees and more than 50 employees.
The blog, titled Health Care Business Pulse ( ), will provide small business owners with continuous updates about the implementation of the Act.
