New Series of Fact Sheets Explains Critical Details of Health Law for Employers

Running a business is hard work and employers don’t have a lot of time to follow new laws and their deadlines. However, small business owners and their employees need to know that March 31, 2014 is the deadline for most Americans to obtain health insurance coverage or face a tax penalty.

Health Law Guide for Business is here to help business owners understand their options for obtaining coverage, both for themselves and their employees.  Over the next several weeks, we will be releasing four one page fact sheets explaining the basics of the law. We will cover the potential tax benefits of providing coverage, information on the new health insurance marketplace called Covered California, penalties for not obtaining coverage, and resources that employers can share with their employees about how to get covered.  Each fact sheet is designed front and back, one side in English and one side in Spanish.

The first fact sheet is a brief introduction to the Affordable Care Act for business owners, covering the most important information they need to know now.  It is available for download now.  We hope that you will print it out, review it and share it with every employer you know.  If you represent an organization of businesses, please share this free resource with your members.

We hope that you will find the information useful as you decide what health care options are best for you and your employees. Once again, click here to view the first edition and stay tuned for three additional fact sheets in the next several weeks.  And as always, visit for the information that employers need to know now about federal health care reform.
