When same-sex marriage was legalized in Minnesota on August 1, 2013, the University began offering benefits-eligible employees the opportunity to cover their same-sex spouse under the plan.
Same-sex domestic partner medical, dental, and life insurance coverage will not be offered after December 31, 2014, since the University will be offering coverage only for married couples effective on January 1, 2015.
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires that most Americans not already covered by Medicare have health insurance in 2014 or risk having to pay a tax penalty. Even though there are more health care options, we believe the UPlan or a plan offered by your spouse’s or same-sex domestic partner’s employer will remain your best option for coverage.
The Affordable Care Act makes it clear: it’s up to you to make sure you have health insurance beginning in 2014. The University of Minnesota is here to help by explaining the options available to you and the steps you need to take so you are covered.
