NASE Reaches Out to Congress With Other Small Biz Groups

Jul 16, 2009

Posted by Molly Nelson - This week the NASE, working with the two other leading small business groups, the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) and the National Small Business Association (NSBA), sent a letter to Congress to remind our legislators to remember small businesses and the self-employed as they work to address healthcare affordability.

The letter reminds members of Congress that since 1999, health insurance costs for small firms have increased 113 percent, and that the nation's smallest firms pay an average of 18 percent more in health insurance premiums for the same benefits as the largest firms.

Small business owners and the self-employed are asking for changes to the healthcare system that include insurance market reforms, increased transparency, equity in tax treatment and improved affordability.
