Implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is less than a year away and as business owners and managers, you likely have many questions. The Chamber is pleased to offer this workshop at no cost to our members, thanks to our presenting sponsor - Frantzen, Kaderli and Klier Insurance.
Misty Baker, Director of Health Insurance Services for the Independent Agents of Texas (IIAT) will present two sessions to outline what is known today about the impacts of the ACA on businesses. The morning session will focus on companies with 50 or more employees and the afternoon session will target companies with fewer than 50 employees. There will also be plenty of time for questions.
If you cannot attend the workshop appropriate to your company size, please feel free to come to the other session.
While employers with fewer than 50 employees are not required to provide coverage to workers, there may still be important impacts to any current health plans and/or workforce issues that arise from the requirement that employees seek individual coverage.
