United States Senator Mary L. Landrieu, D-La., Chair of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, today praised the Small Business Administration's (SBA) launch of a website and blog aimed at educating small business owners about the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
SBA's new web page, www.sba.gov/healthcare, breaks down the key provisions of the Act for different types of businesses.
"Since the Affordable Care Act became law nearly three years ago, there has been a fierce and consistent stream of misinformation about the impact the law will have on America's small business owners," Senator Landrieu said. "Because these efforts have created concern and confusion, it is important that small business owners and self-employed entrepreneurs have access to reliable, unbiased information about the law and what it means for them and their employees. I applaud SBA for its efforts to explain how the Affordable Care Act will benefit the more than 28 million small business owners throughout the country."
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, will provide small business owners with continuous updates about the implementation of the Act.
