Love it or hate it, the Supreme Court has now upheld the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act— what detractors refer to as Obamacare.
Let’s forget politics for a moment, assume it will be put in place in its current form for the most part, and figure out what it means for small businesses like yours.
SNAPSHOT: Major provisions of the Affordable Care Act affecting small business:
For my small business, I pay far more than big businesses for worse coverage, and I know many self-employed individuals who can’t get insurance at all.
Whether the health care act will improve this depends, in large part, on how well the state and federal health insurance exchanges work.
For that, we’ll have to wait until 2014.
