Health Care Law Implementation

The Silicon Valley Leadership Group is deeply committed to making health care more accessible and affordable to all. Employers, along with the government, are the largest payers of health care costs and a critical stakeholder in the process of negotiating health care reform. While we remain committed to providing health insurance to employees, employers in the Silicon Valley and across the country cannot sustain current levels of premium increases without cost shifting to employees or making their business significantly less competitive or unprofitable.

The Leadership Group is working diligently with state and federal policy makers to ensure that the needs and sensitivities ­ businesses face are considered as Federal Health Care Reform is implemented at the state level.
