Affordable Care Act

Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), large employers are required to offer minimum essential coverage to employees who are considered full-time as defined by the ACA.

The ACA defines full-time [FT] employees 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 ACA, you have the opportunity to participate in the GW Health Savings Plan (HSP) and Health Savings Account (HSA).
