ACA Implementation Affects Businesses This Year


Governor Parnell Addresses 
Health Insurance Exchange Decision
Did you know that even though many of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) requirements for businesses have been delayed, the implementation of other aspects of ACA will affect your bottom line this year?  
Under the new law It's Your Business to share information about the new healthcare exchange with employees since the requirement for individuals to purchase insurance has not been delayed. 


In a recent press release Governor  Parnell says "Obamacare not ready for primetime."


Citing concerns about costs associated with creating a state exchange, the continuing burden on the state budget and the belief that the federal government will eventually cut or eliminate federal reimbursement for exchange costs, Governor Parnell justifies his reason for opting out of a state run exchange.
