About a year ago, officials at the Santa Fe-based solar installation company Positive Energy Inc. took the first steps in getting the business’s 50 employees covered by health insurance.
Once the company offered the coverage, however, just 30 could afford the premiums, which start at $1,100 a month for a family that pays a $1,000 deductible, said CEO Regina Wheeler.
So with a Supreme Court ruling Thursday that will continue to expand access and coverage to nearly every American, Wheeler again has some work to do to make sure the other 20 employees will be covered.
