The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is improving access to coverage for individuals and families across Connecticut. As of October 1, small businesses, too, will have new options for health insurance through Access Health CT the health insurance marketplace. And they will also have the opportunity to access tax credits, specifically aimed to help both small business and small non-profits afford to provide insurance to their employees. Managers of small businesses and small non-profits (those with 50 or fewer employees) have many questions about these new options. Universal Health Care Foundation is pleased to announce that we have partnered with a national organization, Small Business Majority to help answer those questions.
Small Business Majority is a national small business advocacy organization, founded and run by small business owners, to support America’s 28 million small businesses. They work to ensure the voices of small business are an integral part of the public policy debate. Health care reform is one of their top issues, and they are working across the country to spread the word about the ACA.
Here in Connecticut, they are available to give presentations to small business groups, including small non-profits, to augment the outreach and education effort that our foundation has undertaken. They have the ability to do in-person presentations as well as webinars, and also have the capability of making presentations in Spanish. We expect to kick off a series of webinars for Connecticut small employers in October. If you know of an organization of small employers who is seeking to educate their members on the ACA, please contact UHCF using the form below or at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will make the connection with Small Business Majority.
