Orange, CA (PRWEB) February 18, 2013
More and more employees may need to provide their own health insurance coverage in the coming years.
According to the Wall Street Journal, many employers are seeking out private contractors to help them run their business as opposed to hiring part or full time employees.
The reason comes down to the Affordable Care Act’s requirement for businesses with 50 employees or more having to provide health insurance options or pay a hefty penalty.
And for small businesses, that penalty, nor providing health insurance, is an option. So to be able to push their businesses and stay within the law, most of them are choosing 1099 employees.
In turn, those 1099 employees need to find their own coverage. And HealthCompare provides the marketplace where contractors can find affordable coverage.
