The Affordable Care Act and Your Business: What to Know and Do As Reforms are Implemented

Signed in to law in March of 2010, the Affordable Care Act stands as one of the most significant attempts at reforming our nation’s health care system. Nearly four years later, key provisions of the law are set to go into effect, many of which directly impact both businesses and individuals. The second event in the 2013-2014 Health Care Forum Series will discuss impending deadlines, announced delays, and requirements businesses are obligated to meet as a part of the Affordable Care Act, among other issues, in an effort to educate Chamber members on how they should be preparing as implementation of health care reforms continue.
