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 which Begins October 1, 2013 for coverage beginning January 1, 2014
