Op-Ed Highlighted ACA's Benefits for Small Businesses

Brian England, a  small business owner and Maryland Citizens’ Health Initiative (MCHI) board member, published an op-ed in The Baltimore Sun highlighting how his business has benefited from the Affordable Care Act (ACA).  England notes that the rising cost of health insurance has been one of the biggest barriers to developing a successful business. However, when England renewed his insurance in August 2011, he found that for the first time, insurance rates had gone down by 6% due to the ACA's MLR requirement.
