• Dear Avon Community School Corporation Employee:


    As your employer we are committed to keeping you informed about possible opportunities available to you as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. healthcare reform. 


    The attached notice is to advise you of the new health insurance Marketplace (exchanges) coverage.  The Marketplace Exchanges may be an opportunity for you and your family to purchase health coverage at a reduced cost.    The notice will give you details on how to access  information about the Marketplace and the plan choices that may be available to you in Indiana and will also provide you with information you will need should you decide to enroll in a Market lace option.  


    If you are eligible for coverage through the Avon Community School Corporation Anthem Plan there is nothing you need to do unless you are interested in Marketplace coverage


    If you are not eligible for coverage sponsored by Avon Community School Corporation the Marketplace is an opportunity for you.  Depending on your household income, you may be eligible for a tax credit or premium assistance to help lower your cost of Marketplace coverage.


    As a general rule, the Avon Community School Corporation Anthem Plan will offer greater benefits at a lower cost than what is available through theMarketplace.  However, if you decide to purchase coverage through the Marketplace, please remember that you will forfeit any premium contribution available to you as our employee. 


    You can review the plans available in Indiana at www.HealthCare.gov. Be sure you carefully review the premium costs and potential out-of-pocket expenses for all health plans available to you. 


    If you decide that the Marketplace is right for you and your family, you must enroll before December 15, 2013 and your new coverage will become effective as of January 1, 2014.
