It's debatable if the fiduciary standard is 'higher' than suitability. But the better question might be, who's holding the bar?
Jan. 30--Businesses that want to know how the federal Affordable Care Act will affect them and their employees now have a place to go to get answers to their questions.
The U.S. Small Business Administration is sponsoring a web page and blog dedicated exclusively to educating small business owners about the Affordable Care Act.
The site is can be reached at www.sba.gov/healthcare.
The new tools will connect small business owners with information provided by those responsible for implementing the law, including the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, said Karen G. Mills, administrator of the Small Business Administration.
"SBA's new Affordable Care Act web page and blog will serve as a resource for small business owners who want to learn more about how to take advantage of these benefits," Mills said.
SBA's new web page breaks down the 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 web page also provides links to other useful information for small businesses, including a glossary of key health care reform terms, an interactive timeline with dates for when certain reforms will be implemented and how to learn more about specific tax provisions and regulations.
The blog, entitled Health Care Business Pulse (www.sba.gov/blog), will provide continuous updates about the implementation of the act.
