Small-Business Exchange Premiums To Climb Slightly, But Less Than Previous Years
Only a small number of businesses buy health insurance off this exchange, which was created by the Affordable Care Act as a marketplace for companies with 100 or fewer workers. Many companies buy directly from insurers.

Obamacare Small-Business Exchange Insurance Premiums To Rise 4.6 Percent
Health insurance premiums for 5,700 small businesses in California — which employ roughly 47,000 workers — will go up 4.6 percent in 2019, Covered California announced Thursday. The increase applies to the small slice of California companies and workers that get their health insurance from Covered California for Small Business, the exchange created under the Affordable Care Act where companies with 100 or fewer workers can buy health plans for their employees.
