Affordable Care Act Health Insurance Marketplace Notice

Very soon, you will be receiving the Health Insurance Marketplace notice below in the mail from the University System of Georgia.

Under the Affordable Care Act, the University System of Georgia, as your employer, is required to provide you this notice.

If you have questions about the Health Insurance Marketplace, please visit the Federal Health Insurance Marketplace website. 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.

The University System of Georgia’s HSA Open Access POS plan meets the Affordability Requirement under the Affordable Care Act. Therefore, in general, University System of Georgia employees who are eligible for health insurance will not be eligible for a tax credit in 2014 through the Health Insurance Marketplace (or Exchanges) created under the Affordable Care Act.
