Fear and Uncertainty Around Obamacare Persist

When it comes to the Affordable Care Act (ACA) there is fear and uncertainty among small-business owners, according to a study by  Merchant Cash and Capital, an alternative financing company for small businesses. Nearly 40% aren’t sure how the ACA will affect their business.

Some small business owners are already preparing for implementation and are feeling the impact on the health of their businesses in 2014. One in four say they will halt any growth initiatives in the near future as a result of the ACA. One in five say they will put new hiring on hold as they wrestle with increasing operational expenses.

The Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) exchange is the marketplace for small businesses to choose health plans for their employees. SHOP is available now to businesses with 50 or fewer full-time equivalent employees. Nine percent of small-business owners don’t offer insurance, but plan to use the SHOP exchange to provide employees with coverage; and 5.42% do offer health insurance, but will switch to a new health insurance plan provided through the exchange.
