TROY (WWJ) – Sorting out how the Affordable Care Act will impact your business can be complicated, but there are plenty of resources available to help you do that.
WWJ Newsradio 950 has partnered with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan to provide free forums to help small business owners learn more about providing coverage for employees.
Khaled Kteily, a senior consultant with the management consulting firm Oliver Wyman, says the first thing business owners must to is get informed.
“Step one is getting online, talking to an agent, finding the resources online and taking a step-by-step view to it … ” Kteily said. “Am I a small business owner? Yes or no. That determines whether or not they’d be eligible for paying the penalty, potential for not offering coverage.”
If you are a small business owner with fewer than 50 employees, you can learn more at a seminars hosted by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan in August and September. Find a seminar and sign up at this link.
