Help keep health care costs under control
November 29, 2012
The cost of health care has been escalating in Michigan for years and has become the single biggest impediment for small businesses seeking to provide health insurance for their employees.
As we brace for the full implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), it is important that policy makers in Washington and Lansing work toward reform that reduces cost and provides certainty for business owners. Several issues that directly impact these priorities are currently before the Legislature. SBAM carries this message at the Capitol every day on behalf of its members. However, it is important for lawmakers to hear for you.
From a potential tax hike to making sure that Michigan small businesses are not on the hook for another burdensome federal program, it is essential that we, as the small business community, take action immediately to keep costs under control.
SBAM stands ready to assist you in communicating with your elected official. Complete information, as well as sample letters are available.
Please contact your state senator and representative TODAY and let them know that you will not stand for higher costs and further uncertainty on the future of healthcare in our state – and that they need to KEEP HEALTH CARE COSTS UNDER CONTROL. Just click here, enter in your address, and the current letters for your legislators will be easily available under “Legislative Alerts & Updates.”
