Ohio Businesses Should Plan Now for Healthcare Changes
7 Things Business Owners Can Do to Get Ready Now
Columbus, Ohio - With just 6 month left before new healthcare mandates, taxes and administrative requirements kick-in for both small and large businesses, Horizon Business Solutions (HBS) is recommending that business owners begin now to plan and prepare for the impact these changes will have on their businesses.
“Open enrollment for individual and small business health insurance exchanges beginning Oct. 1, of this year,” says Kim Bolin, vice president of HBS. Employers will have the option of choosing what Qualified Health Plans to offer their employees from the SHOP exchange, or Small Business Health Options Programs.
Bolin suggests that a business owner can begin to plan now by thinking about the following:
Horizon Business Solutions wants business owners and their employees to know that new consumer protection benefits will be available when the Open Enrollment begins. First, there are new caps on the higher premiums insurers can charge businesses for older employees, and second; an employee with high health care costs no longer increases a group’s premium. There will also be new limits on the share of premiums going to insurers’ profits and administrative costs.
