On August 21st, the Cranston Chamber of Commerce held an informational seminar on the Affordable Health Act at Theater 82, Rolfe Square. Over 50 businesses attended the session presented by Lt. Governor, Elizabeth Roberts. The Chamber event was sponsored by the U.S. Small Business Administration, HealthSourceRI, and The Small Employer Health Task Force. The Lt. Governor emphasized the fact that for the first time businesses don’t have to pick one health plan to fit their entire workforce since employers can now give their employees the option of “Employee Choice.” Employees can now go to HealthSourceRI and pick a plan that best suits their financial status and healthcare needs. The Cranston Chamber will be actively doing outreach for the small business community by scheduling additional seminars with various business groups and organizations.
