The Montrose ACT held a conference today with lawyers from Denver on the legalities of the Affordable Health Care Act. Businesses and their employees were there to find out what they would be responsible for. Discussions included the changes to and regulation of the commercial marketplace for health care coverage. Other topics included the expansion of the medicaid program and the number of grants available to employers who offer workplace wellness programs like quitting smoking, weight loss and gym memberships. Businesses will have to take some action in 2013 to plan for the Act which is expected to go in effect by January 2014.
