Our NannyFusion member, HomeWork Solutions shared some great information on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) aka ObamaCare that just went live on Tuesday October 1, 2013. There is information for employers and nannies to catch up on.
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) or ObamaCare implementation takes a big step October 1st with the nationwide opening of Healthcare Exchanges or Health Insurance Marketplaces. Household employers and their domestic workers such as nannies and senior caregivers have more questions than answers right now regarding the ACA and what this means for them.
