Survey: Self-Employed Divided On Support For Health Care Law

Friday, August 03, 2012

  • “I don’t think the reform does anything to cut health care costs.”
  • “At this time we do not have health care insurance because it’s so expensive. My hope is that with the new law there will be more options and cheaper rates so everyone has an opportunity to have health coverage.”
  • “Something has to be done to control the cost of health care and health insurance.”
  • “This opens the door to more government intervention in our personal and business lives.”
  • “I currently have a HSA with a high-deductible health insurance plan (catastrophic care). My fear is that this will no longer be adequate as the new law is introduced, and I will be forced to pay more for coverage I don’t want.”
  • “I am in favor of the law and would like to see more done to make health care universally affordable and accessible.”


On behalf of the self-employed, the NASE will work aggressively to ensure that affordability and coverage requirement concerns are at the forefront of implementation. We believe continued efforts to enact further reforms will allow the self-employed to use more tools to purchase and maintain affordable health care.
