Affordable Care Act
In March 2010, President Obama signed comprehensive health reform, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), into law. The law makes preventive care—including family planning and related services—more accessible and affordable for many Americans. While some provisions of the law have already taken effect, many more provisions will be implemented soon.
There will be no changes to Lewis & Clark medical coverage or the requirements for coverage. If you are covered by medical coverage, you will keep your same coverage. Open enrollment will be the same as always and you will be able to change your medical plan during open enrollment.
Get Ready for ACA Enrollment: Open enrollment for 2016 starts November 1, 2015 and ends January 31, 2016.
- Up-to-date information about enrollment and implementation can be found at http://www.healthcare.gov/

Beginning with 2015, the Affordable Care Act mandates that all employees who have been offered/obtained Medical coverage through Lewis & Clark College during the calendar year receive form 1095-C. Form 1095-C shows medical insurance offer and coverage throughout the calendar year for the employee. If the employee has Regence Pioneer Medical coverage, form 1095-C will also list information about dependents. If the employee has Kaiser Medical coverage, Kaiser will be sending a separate form to the employee about dependent coverage.
