Health Care Reform - The New Reality for PEOs

The End of Denial for Employee Leasing and PEO Companies?

NAPEO, The National Association for Professional Employer Organizations has published on their website napeo.org an announcement entitled;

PROFESSIONAL EMPLOYER ORGANIZATIONS CONGRATULATE PRESIDENT OBAMA ON REELECTION, LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING WITH ADMINISTRATION ON HEALTHCARE.

I had to clean my glasses. This is an industry where many of it’s owners and executives, (over 98% of all employee leasing companies and PEOs are privately held) have fought health care reform every step of the way. Large contributions were made to The National Federation of Independent Business, The Chamber of Commerce, (click on this link to see the NFIB position) and a host of Republican PACs and lobbyists. We reported on their attitudes and views about Health Care Reform and the PPACA in our earlier blog post Want to Repeal Health Insurance Reform, Not Likely!!!.

NAPEO President and CEO Pat Cleary is quoted as saying “PEOs are already the go-to source for small businesses looking for help in preparing for and complying with the healthcare benefits changes brought on by reform, so we feel we have an important role to play as the implementation of the ACA proceeds” and offered its industry’s expertise as the Obama administration moves forward with implement the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA).

Only time will tell if NAPEO, and the industry as a whole embraces Health Care Reform or not. My opinion is that the PPACA is one more reason small business owners should consider the services of proactive, qualified and responsible employee leasing companies and professional employer organizations.
