What is The Employer Alliance for Affordable Health Care?
The Employer Alliance for Affordable Health Care is more than 3,100 sole proprietors and small business owners working to create a business environment of affordable, employer-based health insurance.
The SBDC cites New York as the 5th most entrepreneurial state in the country. Small businesses continue to drive our economic recovery, comprising of 99 percent of the New York State workforce. Despite the undisputed importance of New York’s small business community, the New York State Legislature routinely implements regulatory and health insurance coverage changes that increase small business premium costs.
Despite the onset of the Affordable Care Act, employer-based coverage continues to be the most an important source of health insurance coverage benefitting employers and consumers alike. State modifications increase costs which are passed directly along to consumers.
Founded in 1997, the Employer Alliance has been a strong force in advocating for change and educating lawmakers about the challenges created by high health insurance costs.
We work with local chambers of commerce and other business associations to educate state lawmakers and the media on the challenges faced by New York State’s small business community. Together we look for practical solutions to help alleviate the financial burden that has increased since the onset of federal reform. We support common sense solutions to give small businesses the relief they deserve.
The Employer Alliance is a volunteer organization. We do not charge for membership, but rely on donations to sustain our advocacy work. For membership information contact Pamela Reese Finch at (518) 462-2296 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
