Healthcare

  


 

Healthcare


Small businesses face higher administrative and premium costs for health insurance. This puts women entrepreneurs at an inherent disadvantage as business owners and as employers seeking to retain competitive employees. Congress and the Administration should implement the healthcare reforms targeting this inequity, and, where necessary, make improvements to the Affordable Care Act.   Key areas that need to be addressed:

  • Ensure Health Insurance Exchanges Provide More Choices and Better Prices for Small Businesses
  • Close the Coverage Gap that Denies the Lowest Paid Workers Access to Health Insurance
  • Cost Containment Measures Should Address Increased Healthcare Costs

Join WIPP’s Healthcare Committee to get access to exclusive policy briefings and teleconferences with industry experts and policymakers on healthcare and health reform related issues.  Committee members receive special communications on policy, regulations, and research on this subject matter.
