Learn about the Affordable Care Act
In March 2010, President Barack Obama signed the Patient
Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) into law and it ensures access for all
Americans to affordable healthcare insurance.
By January 1, 2014, most
Americans are required to have medical insurance through employer, private
provider, or the government; or they will have to pay a tax penalty. For
more information, visit www.healthcare.gov.
Although the U.S.
Department of Treasury has delayed the ACA's employer shared
responsibility penalty and reporting requirements, the law will require large
employers such as NAU that have 50 or more full-time employees to offer a
minimum affordable healthcare insurance to eligible employees and their
eligible dependents up to age 26 effective January 1, 2015.
