Health reform: Wis. employers face decisions

Posted: Saturday, October 12, 2013 --- 8:27 p.m.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The new health care law means small businesses have important choices to make about offering health insurance to their employees.

A Press-Gazette Media report (http://gbpg.net/17mkPGV ) says business owners throughout Wisconsin are trying to figure out which requirements apply to them and how they'll respond.

The Obama administration delayed for one year a provision that requires employers with 50 or more workers to provide health insurance or pay a penalty.

Businesses below that threshold can choose to drop coverage and have their employees go through the individual Health Insurance Marketplace. Those that don't offer coverage but want to could do so through the Small Business Health Options Program, or SHOP, exchange.
