Dear Campus Community:
Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the University System of Georgia, as your employer, is required to provide you this notice to all employees.
No action is required on your part unless you are interested in pursuing health coverage under the ACA (through the Health Insurance Marketplace). If you have questions about the Health Insurance Marketplace, please visit the Federal Health Insurance Marketplace website at https://www.healthcare.gov/families/. The State of Georgia has opted not to operate a Health Insurance Marketplace and therefore, individuals in Georgia will use the federal Health Insurance Marketplace to enroll in coverage.
Also, please be advised that the University System of Georgia’s HSA Open Access POS plan is deemed to meet the Affordability Requirement under the ACA. Because of the availability of this plan option, in general, USG employees who are eligible for health insurance will not qualify for a tax credit in 2014 through the Health Insurance Marketplace (or Exchanges) created under the Affordable Care Act.
Feel free to contact our office should you have additional questions.
