Health Plans for Small Businesses/Entrepreneurs/Contract Workers

If you are a small business owner, entrepreneur or contract worker you may be confused about changes in our health care system. Learn how to navigate the Affordable Care Act and how it impacts on small businesses, entrepreneurs. Topics include: 1) Open enrollment periods; 2) Qualifying for subsidies; and 3) Compliance requirements for small businesses.

Attendees will benefit from this program if: 1) small businesses with employees ranging from 3 people and above; 2) they have employees retiring or turning 65; 3) they would like to learn more about the Affordable Care Act (aka, Obama Care).

Maribeth Fencl is a licensed insurance broker certified to work with Affordable Care Act plans and assist businesses and people in qualifying for subsidies. She partners with multiple carriers like BCBS, Humana, AARP, and other Affordable Care Act Plans. Education on our new health care plan requirements provides knowledge and peace of mind in choosing the right individual health plans for you and your family, as well as your employees.
