The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was signed into law March 2010. The Federal statute aims to expand coverage, lower costs, and improve health care quality with implementation taking place over several years.
MichBusiness recognizes the challenges you face running a successful small business, with one challenge being the cost of providing employee health insurance and navigating the Affordable Care Act. MichBusiness is redoubling its efforts to ensure your understanding of the law. We also represent Michigan’s small business interests with our state policymakers, as they choose the best way to implement the ACA in Michigan.
