"Regardless of the US Supreme Court decision upholding the Affordable Health Care Act, health care costs will continue to be a challenge for businesses and health insurance exchanges will now play a more significant role in making health care accessible and more affordable for businesses. The Long Island Association's Health Alliance (also known asNew York's Health Insurance Exchange) has been providing health insurance services to the business community for nearly twenty years and has proven that market-based solutions can successfully serve the health care needs of the small business community. We now look forward to working with the State of New Yorkas they implement a health insurance exchange for small businesses throughout the state later this year."
The Long Island Association (LIA) is one of the largest business organizations in New York State and the leading business organization on Long Island. Founded in 1926, the LIA's membership is now comprised of small and large businesses, colleges, universities, research laboratories and nonprofit organizations, which together employ two-thirds of Long Island''s workforce. The LIA''s mission is to lead and unify the region in order to strengthen Long Island as a place to live, work, and do business.
