Affordable Care Act

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), commonly called the Affordable Care Act (ACA), is a United States federal statute signed into law by President Obama on March 23, 2010. The intent of this legislation is to ensure that Americans have access to affordable medical insurance. The law requires employers with 50 or more full-time employees, like Coconino Community College, to offer medical insurance to full time employees (which are employees who average 30 hours per week and 130 hours per month within a designated measurement period) and their children up to age 26.

This webpage provides additional information surrounding the law and related CCC policies and procedures, as well as its impact on both employees and the College.
