Health Care Reform:

What It Is and What It Means for Your Company

Please join the Monte Ahuja College of Business Small Business Development Center, the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law and Shaker Launchhouse for this noteworthy program held at the innovative Shaker Launchhouse.

As the Affordable Care Act begins to take effect in the coming years, companies will be subject to a number of requirements that may affect their operations and strategic planning.
  • Is your company subject to the Act?
  • What are its requirements and how can your company prepare to comply?

These questions and more will be addressed during this session.
