I am a Small Business Owner Do I Need to Get Health Insurance?
The business owners, as well as their employees (full-time or part- time) are required to have health insurance.
Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), small businesses with less than 50 full-time employees will not be penalized for not offering health insurance coverage benefit to their full time employee.
The business owners, as well as their employees (full-time or part- time) however, are all subject to the individual mandate, which requires that every individual have health insurance coverage or pay a penalty.
The NYWCC, through a contract agreement with Community Service Society of NY, is providing in-person-assistance services to the self-employed, free-lancers, sole-proprietors, small business owners and their employees.?
