Help for Employers with Early Retirees

May 5, 2010

Affordable health insurance is one of the thorniest issues facing early retirees, but the health care reform legislation creates a program, being launched today, that will make it easier for businesses to help out with coverage. Here are links to a couple of resources for more information. The first is by CBS MoneyWatch writer Steve Vernon, author of the Money for Life blog, who gives you an overview of the program.

The second is an upcoming “live chat”  on May 5 with HHS Secretary Kathleen Sibelius and Commerce Secretary Gary Locke, who will explain the program and take questions from individuals and businesses. You can send your questions to healthreform@hhs.gov in advance of the webcast, or send them live during the event via Twitter using the handle @HHSGOV. If you miss the web event you’ll find it posted later at the healthreform.gov website.
