The article discusses how the passage of The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) in the U.S. affects small businesses. The PPACA is said to offer some benefits designed to help small entrepreneurs to survive and even compete in the big business arena. The author tackles how this health care reform will decrease the insurance premiums paid for by employers and increase policy coverage, and how it will open a door that will make choosing appropriate plans a lot more easier.
