AFFORDABLE CARE ACT AFFECTING TUSCALOOSA COUNTY EMPLOYEES
Tuscaloosa County’s employees and their family members are getting a little something extra in the mail this year.
But Tuscaloosa County Administrator Melvin Vines said he isn’t too excited about it.
Vines said the county is required to sent out a statement to every member of Tuscaloosa County’s insurance coverage plan as part of the Affordable Care Act. That statement lists the amount the county spent on each member’s behalf each month.
Tuscaloosa County is self-insured and has more than 1,500 employees.
The Affordable Care Act required Tuscaloosa County to pay about $80,000 in fees in 2014, and those fees are due again this year..
