Affordable Care Act (ACA)

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) brings significant changes to how we access and pay for healthcare. Under the ACA, large employers are required to offer minimum essential coverage to employees who are considered full-time as defined by the ACA. (Full-time [FT] employees under ACA are defined as anyone employed by a given employer for an average of 30 or more hours per week [or 130 hours per month.])

As an eligible employee for healthcare coverage under the Affordable Care Act, you have the opportunity to participate in the GW Health Savings Plan (HSP) and Health Savings Account (HSA).  Please take some time to review the 2017 Benefits Guide (PDF) as well as the tools and resources below.
