  Best Business Practices 
  • How to perfect your elevator pitch
    A strong elevator pitch starts with an attention-grabbing opening, according to Bert Martinez of Bert Martinez Communications. Afterward, you should highlight the value that your company provides and adjust your pitch based on your audience, experts say. "Lead with the information that the recipient will care most about, and the rest will follow," advises Andrew Cross of Walker Sands Communications. (2/28) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • New ACA regulations address multistate plans, SHOP
    The federal administration has released four sets of rules, three of which are final, regarding Affordable Care Act implementation. The regulations that take effect May 11 include provisions on cost-sharing and coverage denials. The administration also said insurers offering multistate plans will in some cases be allowed to comply with federal rules for benefit packages instead of individual state rules, though most state rules are similar. Meanwhile, proposed rules address the Small Business Health Options Program, designed to serve small employers that participate in exchanges.
