Do you know how future and current healthcare laws will impact your small business?

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) requires all Americans to have "minimum essential coverage" starting January 1, 2014. The "Exchange" opened in October, which means people are now scrambling for a solutions to the high costs of healthcare or the fines they may face without it. There are ways that small business owners can reduce health prices and still keep good benefits. Join us for this short session and learn all about Member Owned Health Plan Cooperatives/MEWA’s like the Georgia Health Plan Trust. Participants of this session will learn:

  • What the current healthcare environment looks like
  • What are the main deadlines businesses have to worry about

This session will be facilitated by Brian Keen, founder of Health Cooperative Strategies.
