The Floating Hospital Community Health Clinic History • The Floating Hospital was originally founded in 1866 to provide health care to newspaper boys, immigrants and others. • TFH used donated ships and free docking space to provide the healthcare services. • We are proud of our history so we kept our name, even though we are now no longer on a ship but in a land- based clinic located in Long Island City, Queens
Healthcare Reform and its effect on Small Businesses • Employee eligible for Medicaid Medicaid to expand to cover everyone under 133% of the Federal Poverty Level. Current wage eligibility for Medicaid will increase from $20K to approximately $40K. Employer’s current healthcare management plans may change Tax brackets may change so that Employers have more options to insure employees • The Bottom Line: Good news: More employees will be insured which means that they have greater access to preventative healthcare services and thus remain healthier and more productiveemployees.
