Employers Have New Tool to Learn About, Teach Affordable Care Act to Employees

(Salt Lake City, UT) – The Utah Department of Health is offering free on-line trainings for employers and their employees. “These trainings cover basic information of the affordable care act, preventive services covered by the ACA, and information on worksite wellness programs for both employers and employees,” said Tania Charette, project lead.

The trainings were developed through joint collaboration among the Heart Disease Prevention, Cancer Control, and Physical Activity and Nutrition Programs. “We want employers and employees to have information on this relevant topic so that when they go get their insurance, they know what to look for in a good policy,” said Nicole Bissonette, UDOH Health Systems Program Manager.

“In the long run, everyone wins by having healthy employees, from the individual to the community,” Charette added.
