Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva will host Covered California’s Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) workshop November 19 at the Fullerton Community Center, 340 W Commonwealth Ave., in partnership with the Fullerton Chamber, at 5:30 p.m. Small business owners will be advised on affordable healthcare options they could provide for their employees, tax credits, and expanded options of health insurance plans.
Small businesses with fewer than 50 full-time employees are not required to provide health insurance. However, Covered California gives employers the options and tools to provide health insurance through the Affordable Care Act. Since Oct. 1st, 2013, employers have begun the process of insurance enrollment by setting up their account, checking their employer eligibility and getting rate estimates through Covered California.
Sandra Rosenstein, a representative from Covered California, will provide a presentation and Q&A for the small business owners. Please RSVP as space is limited: (714) 526-7272 or visit: www.asmdc.org/quirk-silva.
