The Affordable Care Act (ACA) (aka-Obama Care) is moving closer to full implementation. Washington State has chosen to establish a Health Benefit Exchange, a marketplace where individuals and businesses can shop for insurance plans.
The business marketplace is called SHOP (Small Business Health Options Program). The SHOP is for companies with fewer than 50 employees and opens on October 1, 2013. Enrollment for individuals opens October 1, 2013 and ends March 31, 2014.
Take this (free) opportunity to learn about significant changes to health care delivery and what they mean for your business and your employees. Even if you have more than 50 employees, this seminar can provide information useful to your employees as they make health care choices.
Mike Jackling, Small Business/Agent Representative with the Washington Health Benefit Exchange will provide an overview of the Exchange and its role in the ACA. Mike has worked with and educated consumers, employers, brokers and consultants in his varying roles. He has represented industry leaders, including United Healthcare and Aetna. He will be available to answer questions after the presentation.
There is no charge to attend this seminar but registration (below) is required due to the limited seating capacity.
