Here are this week’s links to a few good stories that we found and selected because we feel they might add valuable insights and perspectives for small to medium size businesses.  All of this week’s selections are brought to us courtesy of Thom Stohler of the National Association of Professional Employer Organizations (NAPEO).

  • According to Inc. Magazine, confusion reigns among many small businesses relating to the Affordable Care Act (ACA).  A recent survey indicates that 40% were unsure how the ACA would affect them.  Read Small Business Owners Still Confused About Obamacare by Adam Bluestein to learn more.
  • Kelly Kennedy, writing for USA Today in Healthcare Changes to Watch for in 2014 reminds us that while 2014 brings with it health insurance for millions of Americans who were previously uninsured, there are many other aspects of the ACA that business owners should keep on their radar screen.
  • With the New Year, concerns exist about the impact of healthcare costs especially for those businesses with 50-200 employees.  Read Health Law May Hit Mid-Size Businesses the Hardest, written by Jayne O’Donnell for USA Today.  Managing health care is a cornerstone of a full service PEO, and is worth a look for all small and mid-sized businesses.
