Postal Service to Let Non-Career Employees Sign Up for Health Coverage

MailTruckUnitedHealthcare Services has won a $239 million contract with the U.S. Postal Service to help non-career employees at the agency sign up for health insurance coverage under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

The Postal Service intends to provide health plan coverage to temporary employees between 2014 and 2016, with three ancillary two-year terms that can extend the contract for six additional years, the agency said Tuesday.

Organizations with more than 50 employees are required under the PPACA to offer eligible beneficiaries specific coverage contracts by January 2014.

Employees who receive payments for 30 hours per week on an average for a certain period are also covered, the agency said.
