#HealthHeroes: Inspiration & Aspiration

I started working at Oscar after I graduated from college this past January. It was supposed to be a temporary job before I started at a big investment firm, but as the months went by and I began to get a deeper understanding of what this team was trying to accomplish, I knew I couldn’t leave: the people I’ve had the privilege to work with here have become my health heroes. 

I promise it’s not as corny as it sounds.  Let me explain.

How does the ACA effect job growth on small businesses?

whitehouse:

There’s a few reasons why the Affordable Care Act is a good deal for small businesses and entrepreneurs.

Before the Affordable Care Act, many workers faced what economists call “job lock” – they could only get affordable coverage through their jobs, so the idea of striking out on their own as an entrepreneur wasn’t possible. Now, entrepreneurs can make the decision to start their own business without fear that they won’t be able to find secure, affordable health insurance.

Beyond that, the Affordable Care Act not only provides tax credits to help small businesses cover their workers, but it is also contributing to a dramatic slowdown in the growth of health care costs, which is making it easier for small firms to hire and pay a good wage.  According to one recent survey (http://kff.org/health-costs/report/2014-employer-health-benefits-survey/ ) the average premium for family coverage offered by small firms increased this year at the slowest rate since the survey began in 1999 – and less than one-fifth the average rate over the decade before the Affordable Care Act became law.
