Affordable Care Act (ACA)

Notice to Employees of coverage options under Fair Labor Standards Act 18B
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA, also known as Healthcare Reform) is a set of laws that affect healthcare coverage in the United States. In 2014, the healthcare reform law created a new Health Insurance Marketplace/Exchange (also known as ‘Covered California’). You are not required to purchase insurance coverage through the Marketplace. 
 
Mountain View School District is continuing to offer health coverage as explained in our benefits webpage. Employees who are not eligible for our health benefits, or are working under 30 hours/week, are eligible to purchase from Covered California.  Please be aware that if you do not have medical coverage, either through your employer or Covered California, you may be subject to a penalty from the federal government.
 
If you purchase coverage through Covered California, you may be eligible for a federal subsidy that lowers your monthly premiums or reduces your cost sharing.  However, to receive these federal savings, you cannot be eligible for health plan coverage through your company’s health plan that is affordable and provides “minimum value”.
 
The availability of coverage through Covered California does not affect your eligibility for coverage through our health plan.  However, be aware that if you purchase health benefits through Covered California, you will not be eligible for the District’s health benefit contribution for medical coverage. More information on the healthcare reform law and the marketplaces is available at Covered California and HealthCare.gov.
 
Please contact Geri Payne, Health Benefits Clerk, at (626) 652-4066 for additional information on our plans.
