NFIB creates insurance affordability tool
Sacramento Business Journal

The National Federation of Independent Business launched an online tool Friday to help small-business owners estimate whether the insurance they offer is “affordable” as defined by the national health reform law. If the insurance is not affordable, employees may turn down employer-sponsored coverage, buy insurance through the state health benefit exchange — and qualify for subsidies. For large employers, this will lead to a $3,000 penalty for each employee.
