As you know, the Union has been pursuing the 30-hour rule for benefit eligibility under Obamacare with Rutgers. Today, we received notification from Rutgers that the State has confirmed that the effective date for eligibility for benefits as a 30 hour or more employee is effective retroactive to January 1, 2015.
Affected employees will be notified by Human Resources of the steps they need to take for enrollment and the amount of deductions that will need to be paid.
In addition, the Union continues to pursue reimbursement of out-of-pocket expenses for those of you who should have been covered under the SHBP between 1/1/15 and the present.
If you have been negatively impacted with out-of-pocket expenses, please contact our office for further information.
