Affordable Care Act FAQ

Affordable Care Act (ACA) regulations, effective Jan. 1, 2016, introduced changes that apply to all UC employees. New provisions made it easier for employees to maintain UC coverage and expanded eligibility for the Core Benefits Package (including the UC-paid Core medical plan).

Under a separate part of the ACA, you and your medical coverage providers are now required to report to the IRS, confirming that you have had minimum essential medical coverage for yourself and your dependents throughout the tax year.
