To help educate small business owners about the Affordable Care Act, the SBA said it has launched a Web page and blog.
The 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 page also provides links to a glossary of key health care reform terms, an interactive timeline with dates for when certain reforms will be implemented, a state-by-state breakdown of health care options, and how to learn more about specific tax provisions and regulations, according to the SBA.
Additional resources will be added as they become available, the agency said.
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 blog, titled “Health Care Business Pulse,” will provide small business owners with continuous updates about the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, the SBA said.
