Small Business Health Care Resources
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Affordable Care Act or ACA) enacted comprehensive health insurance reforms designed to provide Americans with access to quality, affordable health insurance.
The new online Health Insurance Marketplace will provide individuals, families, and small businesses that currently don't have insurance or are looking for a better deal with a new way to find health coverage that fits their needs and their budgets.
Open enrollment in the Marketplace starts Oct. 1, with coverage starting as soon as Jan. 1, 2014. North Carolina families and small business can visit HealthCare.gov right now to find information needed to prepare for open enrollment.
