Small Business Help

A bill moving through the House would require health insurers to tell
their small business clients about low-cost health care plans that are
available.

"By passing this bill, we can make small employers aware of more
affordable health care coverage options available for their employees," Rep.
Denise Dittrich, DFL-Champlin, said. "In doing so, we can help save small
businesses money while ensuring that those who are eligible for health
insurance, receive it."

Dittrich said many health care companies offer less expensive plans for
small businesses, but all employers know they exist.
