Dear Colleague:

Per the provisions of the Affordable Care Act, the University will be receiving a small rebate from United Healthcare (UHC) for part of the medical insurance premiums we paid in 2011. 

We know that 2011 plan participants received a form  letter from UHC, and that this letter has generated questions. 

UHC was required to send that letter to ALL customers covered by their health plans in 2011. 

We will provide more information once we receive the rebate and determine how the rebate will be applied. 

Tulane’s use of the rebate will follow the rules outlined by federal agencies including the Department of Labor and the Internal Revenue Service. 

Thank you for your patience as we determine next steps.

Anne P. Banos
Chief of Staff and Vice President
