Starting January 1, 2014, if someone does not have a health plan that qualifies as minimum essential coverage, he or she may have to pay a fee. Employer sponsored coverage (such as the State Group Health Insurance Program) is considered minimum essential coverage.

When departments hire new term or student employees, the Insurance Marketplace notice MUST be printed off and a copy given to each new hire. Additionally, the appropriate UT cover letter must be printed and given to the new hire (term employees and adjunct instructors receive letter for ineligible employees; undergraduate and graduate student employees receive letter for students.)

Regular employees will receive the Insurance Marketplace notice and notice for Insurance Eligible Employees as part of their intake process with Human Resources.
