We understand that GSBA has a very diverse membership base and that there may not be agreement from all members on the specifics of achieving affordable health care for small business. However, as a business chamber, we feel it is important to be at the table during this important debate and as a result, the following platform has been adopted that will help us participate more fully in the national discussion.
GSBA recognizes that:
- Access to affordable effective Healthcare is vital to individual, family and small business well-being
- The opinion/experience of small business owners/employees is important and must be part of the discussion
- The LGBT community has historically been challenged by access to healthcare via the traditional employer-
- sponsored health plans. Reform efforts should address this
