Prior to the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA),which NSBA ultimately opposed due to its failure to truly address costs, NSBA was the first national small-business organization to support and develop a broad health care reform proposal. A nationally-recognized leader when it comes to small business health care policy, NSBA endorsed the following proposal as the best way to reform health care for America’s small businesses. NSBA’s goal back then was, and continues to be our priority today, to bring meaningful affordability, access, and equity in health care to small businesses and their employees. We firmly believe—regardless of what legislation has been enacted—that any broad reform of the health care system must reduce health care costs while improving quality, bring about a fair sharing of health care costs, and focus on the empowerment and responsibility of individual health care consumers.
