How does health care affect you?
As a small business owner you have many different roles to play and tasks to accomplish. A topic of high interest that many PPA members have to deal with is health care. To help keep you up to speed on what is currently happening on Capitol Hill, this webinar will focus on what the new health care law--the Affordable Care Act--means for small businesses.
The U.S. federation of state Public Interest Research Groups (U.S. PIRG) and the Small Business Majority will present information from both federal and state provisions so that you know how the law affects you. We will review small business tax credits (including who is eligible for them and how to claim them), state insurance exchanges, high-risk pools, shared responsibility and cost containment. You will also learn about tools and resources available for small businesses interested in learning more about health care law.
