Benefit Summaries

Brief overview of the benefits available by employee type:


Federal Affordable Care Act Health Insurance Marketplace

Beginning in 2014, the federal Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires most everyone to obtain health insurance for themselves and their dependents or pay a penalty when filing their tax returns. The Marketplace (also known as the Exchange) is a new option for people to obtain health insurance.

If you have State Group Health insurance through your employment at the UW, you do not need to enroll through the Marketplace or take any action, unless you choose to do so. UW employees will not be eligible for a premium subsidy for coverage purchased throught the Marketplace. You can review the plans available through the Marketplace beginning on October 1, 2013.
