SBA launches site to help small business plug into Affordable Care Act

The Affordable Care Act takes effect for many small businesses over the next two years.

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) on Monday started a website to help small businesses understand the set of choices they face.

It's www.sba.gov/healthcare.

It includes online tools to gather up information provided by agenices that will be responsible for implementing the law, including the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The act specifies a set of choices that affect how business owners deal with premiums and access to insurance plans.  The new site breaks down some of the act's provisions for businesses in different sizes -- such as, self-employed, fewer than 25 employees, fewer than 50 employees and more than 50 employees.
