Washington Alert-Part I

… The Obama administration on Aug. 1 launched what it described as a “one-stop-shop” website aimed at providing employers educational materials related to the Affordable Care Act. The site includes a wizard tool that is tailored based on the size and location of a business. It also has related links to the Small Business Administration, the Department of Health and Human Services, and the Treasury Department. “As part of the Administration’s ongoing dialogue with leaders of our nation’s top businesses, this latest tool will help ensure that employers of all sizes know what the Affordable Care Act means for them, and have the information they need to take advantage of the new benefits and opportunities under the law,” the Treasury Department said in a statement. The site can be accessed here.
