[INDIANAPOLIS, IN.], Sept. 26, 2013 – The countdown has begun to what some consider a soft launch of the public insurance exchanges established under the landmark health law known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), yet many employers remain unprepared. PPACA brings numerous responsibilities and options to employers, but navigating the sea of information can be extremely difficult. That’s why United Benefit Advisors (UBA) created its PPACA Resource Center, a free online resource with constantly updated information and analysis to aid employers in their employee benefits planning strategy.
