Since March 2010, when the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA or ACA) became law, the University of Idaho has devoted significant time and effort toward understanding how it will affect our health plan and our employees. As a result, we are continuing to offer medical and prescription coverage only, at full cost, to non board-appointed employees who:
- Work at least 30 hours a week, or
- Teach at least 11 credits per semester as a temporary faculty member or lecturer.
Be sure to check the Health Care Reform flyer for more information on the medical/Rx plan coverage.

*Current tax law requires you pay federal income and Social Security taxes on the full value of the coverage for other eligible adults and their children, unless they qualify as your tax dependent for purposes of tax-free health coverage. The value of the coverage will be included in your gross income and reported as imputed income on your W-2 form.
*Contributions are not pro-rated at any time.
