SBM says “no” to health insurance premiums hikes on small businesses

Small Business Minnesota submitted comments to the Department of Commerce requesting that they deny proposed health insurance premium rate hikes on small businesses and individual business owners.

Surveys consistently indicate that affordable health insurance is the top priority of most business owners. Small business owners pay more per employee for the same health insurance policies as their big-business counterparts. The decision-making process from this point forward is closed to the public and the decision will be announced October 1, 2015.  View Proposed Health Insurance Premiums letter.
