Health Insurance Reform: Boon or Bane for Earnings?
April 15 – Will "Obamacare" batter or bolster your readers' profit margins? Experts around the nation attempt to answer that question in a new story "Health Insurance Reform: Good or Bad for Your Bottom Line?"
Whatever their size, businesses must act now to comply with the federal Affordable Care Act (ACA). Regulations are rolling out of Washington in an attempt to distil the requirements of the law into practical guidelines. A recent ruling established minimum standards for acceptable insurance plans. In early April it was announced that for most states, the small business exchanges would offer policies from only a single carrier the first year; multiple carrier offerings will come later.
For smaller employers with fewer than 50 workers, the ACA offers benefits that may help cap costs at a time of rising premiums. For larger employers the legislation poses considerable strategic challenges as the nation moves toward open enrollment in the fall of this year and then on to the launch of the state exchanges in 2014.
You are invited to review the article in either of two forms: one written for small employers, with fewer than 50 full time workers, and the other geared to the needs of large organizations.
