On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed into law the Affordable
Care Act (ACA). The law put in place comprehensive health insurance reforms
intended to make health care more affordable, accessible and of a higher
quality for families, businesses, and taxpayers alike. The Affordable
Care Act has expanded those employees considered eligible for health
insurance through their employers, including West Virginia University,
and has implemented new IRS reporting requirements, among other changes. For additional information about the Affordable Care Act, visit the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services website.
