SBA website offers information on health care law

The Small Business Administration has launched a website that it says will help educate small businesses about the Affordable Care Act.

Tools at the site are intended to provide businesses with information from federal agencies regarding the law’s options, mandates and how provisions of the law will be implemented, according to an e-mail from Wayne Bell, SBA district director in Wichita.

SBA’s Web page breaks down key provisions of the Act based on business size in the following categories: self-employed, fewer than 25 employees, fewer than 50 employees and more than 50 employees.

The website also provides links to other information, including a glossary of terms, an interactive timeline with dates that provisions become effective and a state-by-state breakdown of health care options.
