The page, www.sba.gov/healthcare breaks down the legislation's key provisions, with information filtered by business size between the self-employed, those with fewer than 25 employees, fewer than 50 employees and more than 50 employees. Information on the site will be provided by the SBA's federal partners responsible for implementing the law, including the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Also on the site will be other resources like a glossary of key health care reform terms and a timeline for when certain reforms will be implemented.

The blog, entitled "Health Care Business Pulse," will be located at www.sba.gov/blog. It will provide small business owners with continuous updates about the implementation of the Act.
