The University of Wisconsin-Extension Dane County will offer an overview of what the Affordable Care Act may mean for farms, both as small employers and the self-employed on Nov. 4, from 6-8 p.m., at the UW-Extension Dane County office at 5201 Fen Oak Drive, Madison.
The workshop provides highlights of what Affordable Care Act requirements are already in place and the changes beginning in 2014 and 2015. The workshop will also cover how to access the marketplace online to shop for health insurance for individuals, families and for employers considering offering insurance to their employees.
Heidi Johnson, UW-Extension Dane County crops and soils educator, will discuss what the law will mean for both farm families purchasing their own health insurance and farms, as small businesses, exploring the option of providing health insurance for their employees.
Phil Harris, UW-Extension/Madison farm tax law specialist will explain the tax implications of the health care law.
