SBA Launches Affordable Care Act Web Page & Blog

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) today launched a
new web page and blog dedicated to educating small business owners about the
Affordable Care Act. 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 Affordable Care Act provides small business owners with access and opportunity to
provide affordable health care options for their employees,” said SBA Administrator
Karen G. Mills. “SBA’s new Affordable Care Act web page and blog will serve as a
resource for small business owners who want learn more about how to take advantage of
these benefits.”

The Affordable Care Act has many beneficial measures specifically for small businesses,
including slowing premium cost growth and increased access to quality, affordable health
insurance. 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 web page also provides links to other useful information for small businesses,
including 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. Additional
resources will be added as they become available.

The blog, entitled Health Care Business Pulse (www.sba.gov/blog), will provide small
business owners with continuous updates about the implementation of the Act. The blog
is for informational purposes only and is not intended as legal or tax advice. Readers
should consult their legal or tax professionals to discuss how specific matters relate to
their individual business circumstances.
