Health care reform changes to UC plans likely in 2011
How will the new federal health care law affect UC sponsored medical coverage? Many faculty and staff are wondering.
With signing of the new healthcare legislation into law last week and the regulatory process expected to start in the near future, UC Human Resources will continue to closely monitor the implementation of the employer-related provisions.
UC employees will be given notice of any changes, as well as information about how to take necessary actions, once additional details are available.
For example, many people are anxious to know how to include adult children under age 26 in their health plan. This provision will be effective at UC, following open enrollment, for the start of the 2011 calendar year. This provision does not apply to adult children who are eligible to enroll in another employer-sponsored plan. UC HR will provide further details as soon as it can.
