Affordable Care Act: At Duquesne

For Duquesne Students

All full-time students of Duquesne University are required to carry some form of health insurance.

Under ACA, all young people who qualify for dependent coverage under their parents' health insurance plans may now be covered until the age of 26. For the 2013-2014 academic year, Duquesne University also offers student coverage under Blue Cross-Blue Shield Highmark.

For more information, see For Students.

For Duquesne Employees

Healthcare Reform Marketplace Notification

Employees who do not qualify for Duquesne health insurance coverage must visit the Health Insurance Marketplace and obtain coverage during scheduled open enrollment periods. Failure of individuals to obtain coverage may result in government penalty fees.

For employees who are already participating in a Duquesne health insurance plan, no new action under ACA is required. Your Duquesne insurance meets the minimum essential coverage mandated by ACA. However, all employees, even those currently covered by Duquesne, are allowed to visit the Health Insurance Marketplace and reevaluate their insurance needs for 2014.
