The U.S. Small Business Administration in Washington, D.C, has launched a new web page and blog dedicated to educating small business owners about the Affordable Care Act.
The new tools will serve as a gateway for small business owners connecting them with information provided by SBA’s federal partners responsible for implementing the law, including the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
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, www.sba.gov/healthcare , 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 ( www.sba.gov/blog ), will provide small business owners with continuous updates about the implementation of the Act.
The blog is for informational purposes only and is not intended as legal or tax advice, said SBA officials. Readers should consult their legal or tax professionals to discuss how specific matters relate to their individual business circumstances.
