A Small Business Approach To Navigating Health Reform in Southern California

Meeting Description:


There have been several reforms to our healthcare system over the past year in California and on the national level.  Many of those reforms create new opportunities for small businesses to cut costs and administrative waste while helping them recruit and retain a talented workforce.  This webinar will examine recent changes in the law that can boost your bottom line such as:


  • Tax credits (up to 35%) to cover healthcare costs
  • State purchasing pool, or exchange, to give small businesses access to bulk purchasing and lower rates that are normally reserved for large companies
  • Grants to run workplace wellness programs
  • Cost-containment measures to cut insurance companies' administrative costs and to reward healthcare providers' efficiency




A question and answer session will follow. Please join us for all the latest information about recent and upcoming changes that will impact your business.
