Tue January 13, 2015

A free forum to offer information to small business owners who have questions about their health insurance options under the Affordable Care Act is scheduled for Monday, Feb. 2, at the Medinah Shriners in Addison.

The forum is sponsored by the DuPage County Health Department and the keynote speaker is being provided by the U.S. Small Business Administration.

All small business owners are invited, including food service operators, realtors, salon owners, pool and spa owners and more. The forum is free, but space is limited.

These are some of the questions that will be answered:

·       Are there financial incentives?

·       Is there a deadline?

·       May I use my insurance agent or broker?

·       Where can I get help locally?
