What is Health Care Reform?
On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act (ACA) also known as health care reform into law. The law puts in place a significant number of health insurance reforms that have rolled out over the last three years. Some of the final and most notable changes of the law will take effect on January 1, 2014.
One way to characterize the impact of the ACA is to say that it will make insurance more accessible to you. There are a number of provisions throughout the law that help you afford coverage, as well as guarantee you access to insurance with a minimum level of benefits.

We have information to help you navigate these challenges and opportunities so that you can make the best decisions for your business as the health insurance landscape unfolds in 2014.
Nevada Captive Insurance
Captive insurance is a regulated form of self-insurance, in which the insurer is owned wholly by the insureds. It is organized for the purpose of self-funding the owners’ risks. Currently, Nevada, which is known for being a business-friendly state, ranks 6th in the nation as a domicile for captive insurers.
Why is it so attractive?
Among many contributing factors is its lack of a personal or corporate tax structure and a readily available, knowledgeable and responsive Division of Insurance staff. Nevada also offers a tax credit of up to $5,000 applicable to the first year of a captive’s acquisition of a Certificate of Authority.
