Small Business Owners Try To Sruvive Affordable Care Act
Updated: Wednesday, August 21 2013, 03:44 PM EDT
It has been a month since the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act requiring all Americans to purchase health insurance, or pay a penalty.
Hoffman's Chocolate has been one of the lucky ones if you ask Fred Meltzer.
But the CEO also knows the challenges with owning a small business and most recently, one of those has been learning more about the Federal Health Care Law and what it means for his company.
He says there's a lot of information but things like lower premiums and more choices are good for his employees.
Still, he has no plans to cutback his staff but is looking for ways to save money to offset potential additional costs. "Buy local, invest in the local economy, by doing that, we can save money by not having to transport across the country or state."
Meltzer says lots of changes could happen before the law gets fully implemented in 2014 and until then, "we'll continue to monitor what is being done and what changes will happen because there will be changes between then and now."
A Gallup poll this week says making federal healthcare available and
affordable is one of the top ten most important issues right now.
