The U.S. Small Business Administration and Small Business Majority have set dates for a co-produced set of weekly Affordable Care Act 101 webinars to be conducted for small business owners until the opening of the new SHOP Health Insurance Marketplaces on October 1.
During each presentation, small business owners may learn the basics of the Affordable Care Act and what it means for their company and employees. SBA representatives help small business owners understand facts about the Affordable Care Act so they can make informed decisions about providing health insurance for their employees.
This free series focuses on both federal and state provisions to assist small business owners in understanding how the law will affect them. It offers a question and answer session following. Topics being discussed include:
• Small business tax credits (available to businesses and tax-exempt nonprofits) — who’s eligible for them and how to claim them
• Small business (SHOP) marketplaces
• Employer shared responsibility
• Cost containment.
• Tools and resources available for small businesses interested in learning more about the law
The Affordable Care Act 101 takes place on Thursdays at 1 p.m. central daylight time. Content will generally be the same each week. Below are the registration links for upcoming presentations.
