Three options for business owners needing to get ready for ObamaCare

Small business owners certainly are facing a raft of complex concerns as they prepare to deal with the provisions of the Affordable Care Act. This is not a simple question.

Many information sources can be found online, and there are several sites specifically tailored to guide businesses through the new legislative-regulatory maze.

One is the Health Coverage Guide, managed by Small Business Majority, a Washington, D.C.-based advocacy group.

Probably as good a basic and advanced information source is the U.S. Department of Commerce's SBA site specifically on the health care law..

For the tablet-reader, we'll recommend this book available on Amazon, "The Busy Business Owner's Guide to Health Care Reform: What You Need to Know."

Many of the business-related provisions of the care act go into effect later this year, and then fully on Jan. 1, 2014.
