Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act

Section 1512 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act created a new Fair Labor Standards Act, section 18B, which requires employers to notify employees of coverage options available through the Health Insurance Marketplace. This requirement extends to all employees without regard to eligibility for health insurance offered by the college.  Accordingly, here is your notice entitled, New Health Insurance Marketplace Coverage Options and Your Health Coverage. If you have any questions about your health insurance coverage or your options, you should utilize the contact information provided in this notice.
