Under the Affordable Care Act, the university is starting to receive health care subsidy notices for current or former employees who have purchased health coverage online through the federal Health Insurance Marketplace.
The Benefits Office needs to review and in many cases respond to these notices within 90 days to avoid potential tax penalties for the university.
If you handle human resources paperwork or manage mail for your unit, the Benefits Office needs your help in watching for these important notices. Please promptly send any envelopes addressed to “Benefits Manager” from the Health Insurance Marketplace/U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to Donna Gee in the Benefits Office, G405 Wolverine Tower.
The notices have been and will continue to be delivered to many locations across campus. Initial delivery is determined by what the employee enters for “Employer Address” when applying for health coverage through the Marketplace – often the work site address rather than a central administrative address.
