The UUA Office of Church Staff Finances has begun sending out monthly emails to keep congregational leaders informed about the federal Affordable Care Act, which will be nearly fully implemented in January 2014.
Emails are being sent to board presidents and/or board chairs who have a my.uua.org account. Others may also receive the emails by sending their name, congregation name, job title, and email address to Patti Angelina, Insurance Plans coordinator.
You do not need to have employees enrolled in the UUA Health Plan to receive these emails. Previous monthly email alerts will be archived on UUA.org. Linda Rose, of the Church Staff Finances office, advises, “It is the responsibility of all employers, including congregations, to learn about the ACA and to fully prepare themselves to make thoughtful decisions regarding employee benefits, including health insurance.”
