Honestly, those two words “Change Ahead” should be on every business owners’ card as a daily reminder that in today’s world, change is always coming. It’s what we do (as a society). And this week, as we prepare to welcome our 45th President of USA, change for the Affordable Care Act may be coming fairly quickly.
But like anything government-related, it’s complicated. There are many ideas and proposals on the table and per usual a lot of noise, but not much clarity. For example, last week some headlines stated “30 million people lost their health insurance” in the wee hours of the morning. This is simply not true.
One thing we can say for sure is that UNTIL the law of land (ACA) is replaced with something else and both houses of Congress have approved it and it is signed by the President, it is STILL the law of the land and that’s what we must use for all of our decision-making.
Business owners get nervous when Washington uses health insurance (a big line item in everyone’s annual budget) as a political ping-pong ball, but rest assured that our super team at Moore Benefits is watching this closely and we’ll report any big changes that will affect YOUR business in a timely manner. No politics, no hype, just the facts that you need to make good decisions and keep running your business effectively.
