Legacy Qwest Retiree Health Care (R-07)
We have been informed by CenturyLink that under the terms of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) any company that employs 50 or
more people is required to provide "affordable" healthcare. The law also requires that Company’s using contractors that employ 50 or
more require the contractor to provide healthcare, otherwise the company utilizing the contractor could become liable to do so.
We understand that CenturyLink took steps last year to renegotiate all contracts with their U.S. Vendors and Contractors to require
them to provide affordable health care to their employees who perform work for CenturyLink business.
They did not renew their contracts with and will not use contractors who will not provide ACA-complaint health care to their employees.
