Elbert County news in a hurry


Affordable Care Act info offered

Elbert County small business owners are invited to learn about the Affordable Care Act — often called Obamacare — in weekly webinars.

The Small Business Administration and Small Business Majority are launching the Affordable Care Act 101 weekly webinar series. Small business owners can learn the basics of the Affordable Care Act and what it means for their company and employees, including insurance reform, the small business health care tax credit, the new health insurance marketplaces, and employer shared responsibility provisions.

Each week, SBA representatives will walk through key pieces of the law so small business owners can make informed decisions. The webinars take place every Thursday from Sept. 7-26, beginning at noon. For more information, contact Chris Van Es at christopher.vanes@sba.gov.
