Affordable Care Act - Insurance Marketplace

The university continues to provide employer-based insurance to OU benefits-eligible employees. As a key part of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), people can also consider purchasing health insurance in the Health Insurance Marketplace, also called an insurance exchange.

The Marketplace is designed to help you compare different health insurance options. An initial evaluation by the university and Human Resources has determined that the university-provided coverage continues to be a good value for employees with costs that remain low relative to other available options.

If university managers receive ACA documents on behalf of an employee that ask for plan verification, please forward them to the HR Benefits office on your campus.
