Determine If Employer-Based Coverage Meets the Affordability Standard

Affordability Standard Calculator

Use the following calculator to help determine if employer-based coverage meets the affordability standard as derived from the federal Affordable Care Act. Employer-based coverage is considered "affordable" if it does not exceed 9.78% of the employee's income.







NOTE: The affordability standard calculator only determines if your spouse’s coverage meets the affordability standard. Check with your spouse’s employer to determine if their employer-sponsored coverage meets the minimum value standard. If either the affordability standard OR the minimum value standard is not met, your spouse is eligible for coverage on the UVA Health Plan.
