California Small Businesses and the Affordable Care Act

In March 2011, Small Business Majority and Pacific Community Ventures (PCV) released the results of a survey, commissioned by PCV, of 804 California small business owners with fewer than 20 employees on key provisions of the Affordable Care Act. It found that small business owners who currently don’t offer health insurance, along with those who do, are more likely to provide or continue to provide coverage because of the healthcare tax credits and state insurance exchange.

The poll found that a substantial number of respondents weren’t familiar with either provision of the healthcare law, but once provided with the information, said they are likely to take advantage of these provisions.
