“Small Businesses, Big Challenges”
Impact of Healthcare Law on Entrepreneurs Focal Point of February, 28 Event

Two free events are open to all small businesses; chance for entrepreneurs to learn about new law and share ideas about how to implement it in Nevada

Las Vegas, NV—The Consumer Assistance and Resource Enterprise (CARE), in conjunction with national small business advocacy organization Small Business Majority, will host two interactive events on Thursday, February 28, 2013 on the Affordable Care Act’s benefits to Nevada small businesses and the state’s recent activity building its exchange and implementing reforms in the new healthcare law.

The event, which is open to all small business owners, will feature a panel of healthcare and small business experts discussing topics relevant to entrepreneurs. These include small business tax credits, the state’s work setting up a health insurance exchange, wellness grants and cost containment. It will also give small business owners a chance to provide the panel ideas and suggestions on how Nevada should proceed with implementing the law.

A question and answer period will follow each panel discussion.

“There have been many reforms to our healthcare system over the past several years, both nationally and in Nevada,” said Tim Gaudette, Western Outreach Manager for Small Business Majority. “It’s important that small business owners hear about how many of the new healthcare law’s business-friendly provisions can help, and also for them to tell us what the state can do to make the law work for them.”

CJ Bawden, Communications Director for the Silver State Health Insurance Exchange will be an additional panelist.

“We believe it’s important for small business owners here in southern Nevada to learn more about the healthcare law and how it affects them,” said Ted Decorte, Chief Operating Officer of CARE. “This interactive dialogue is a great way for them to get the information they need to take advantage of and comply with key provisions of the new law, and for us to get feedback on their thoughts and concerns.”

The two similar sessions will be held on Thursday, February 28, 2013 from 10:00 am – 12:00 noon, and from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm at 1785 E. Sahara Ave., Suite 360, Las Vegas, NV 89104. Small business owners can RSVP by calling (702) 836-9033 or by emailing stacha@nevadanavigators.com.
