How many hours does the employee need to work with a company before they offer medical insurance?
The ACA requirement to offer health coverage is for full-time employees. The ACA generally defines a full-time employee as one who at the start date is reasonably expected to work 30 hours/week or more. Thus the overall application is if an employee on their start date is expected to work 30 or more hours/week then they are a full-time employee unless they fit the variable hour, seasonal or part-time definition. Health coverage must begin no later than the 90th calendar day of employment. Employers must have a minimum of 50 employees.
