I am a recently retired teacher. I have been told by my district that I must have a 26 week break in service before I can substitute teach. Even though I have insurance their understanding is they have to offer me health insurance, and I can’t decline it because I was employed full time from Oct. 1, 2014- July 1, 2015. Is it true that under the affordable care act, even though I would be working a few hours as a substitute, they still would have to offer me insurance? This is hurting the small income I would like to receive from substitute teaching.
