Affordable Care Act forum Aug. 8 at SNHU

‘Countdown to October 1, 2013: The Affordable Care Act and Your Small Business’ will offer information businesses will need to comply with the mandate to offer health coverage to employees

Businesspeople interested in learning more about the wide-ranging effects of the federal Affordable Care Act are invited to a free forum scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 8, at the Southern New Hampshire University dining center banquet facility in Manchester.

“Countdown to October 1, 2013: The Affordable Care Act and Your Small Business” will focus on information New Hampshire companies will need to comply with the employer mandate to offer health coverage to employees.

Topics include coverage for dependents and spouses, qualifications for the health premium tax credit, the composition of the new health exchange and the portion of insurance costs employers will be obligated to pay. Though many of the concepts explored will center on small business, larger employers will also find this conference helpful.

Presenters will include New Hampshire Insurance Department Commissioner Roger Sevigny as well as representatives of the U.S. Small Business Administration, Northeast Delta Dental, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield and Great New Hampshire Restaurants Inc.

The forum is presented by the Center for Women’s Business Advancement at Southern New Hampshire University  in coordination with Northeast Delta Dental, WGIR-AM, the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce, the New Hampshire Division of Economic Development, Southern New Hampshire University and New Hampshire Business Review.
