Small businesses in Nebraska want to move forward on ACA implementation. The Governor and the DOI as an opportunity to help by setting up new competitive marketplaces for health insurance (called health insurance exchanges) where small businesses will be able to band together to shop for health coverage. But in spite of a lot of data concerning the Medicaid expansion and a very positive report from UNMC, the Governor continues to drag his feet in an effort, I can only assume, to burnish his image among the far right members of his gubernatorial club.
You can give input on what you think the insurance exchange should look like in our state by attending one of the meetings happening in September. If you can not attend a meeting, please complete the Nebraska DOI survey. They are gathering input and we need to make sure they hear from families, farmers, ranchers and small businesses.
