If you’ve got questions about your health insurance options under the Affordable Care Act, you’re not alone. Because many employers were struggling to find the information they needed in a disjoined array of scattered resources, the Obama administration launched a tool designed to help them explore and understand all their options.
The website, Business.USA.gov/healthcare, uses a “wizard tool” that takes users through a series of questions to deliver a set of article resources from the Health and Human Services Department, the Small Business Administration, and the Treasury Department that can be used to answer any questions that apply specifically to the user’s individual situation. It also connects employers to information about tax credits and other elements of the Affordable Care Act.
The website is a result of President Obama’s challenge to government agencies to “think beyond their organizational boundaries in the best interest of serving America’s business community, and start thinking and acting more like the businesses they serve.”
