Business owners get lesson in new health insurance

July 31, 2013

APTOS -- Michael Lujan from Covered California, the statewide health insurance exchange created to administer the federal Affordable Care Act, mapped out what small business owners can expect when major provisions of the new health care law go into effect in January.

Lujan, a longtime insurance agent, spoke to a crowd of about 50 local small business owners and insurance agents at a workshop Tuesday at Cabrillo College. He was invited by state Sen. Bill Monning, D-Carmel, to help explain what businesses with fewer than 50 employees will be required to do under the new law that requires individuals to carry health insurance.
