Small Businesses Face Rising Health Care Costs As New Laws Loom
The final health care reform bill has been signed by the President. Now, businesses across the country are beginning to prepare for its impact. While the bill is set to cost $938 billion over the next 10 years, it is set to provide insurance for an estimated 32 million more people. Businesses won't feel the full effect until 2014, when they are required to make the changes that would have them insure more employees. The requirements for that coverage will expand thereafter and reflect political decisions made in the future.
