Who’s next? Target cuts health insurance for part-time employees

Target’s corporate office announced its decision to stop offering health insurance to part-time employees in a blog post Tuesday. The new policy goes into effect April 1st and workers have until mid-March to sign up for Obamacare to be eligible for coverage this year.

The following is part of the company’s explanation:

Health care reform is transforming the benefits landscape and affecting how all employers, including Target, administer health benefits coverage. Our decision to discontinue this benefit comes after careful consideration of the impact to our stores’ part-time team members and to Target, the new options available for our part-time team, and the historically low number of team members who elected to enroll in the part-time plan.

We recognize this change may be better for some and also may cause disruption for those who previously elected to enroll in this benefit. That’s why we have developed an approach to ease the transition for those impacted most. As a company, Target continuously reviews our programs and offerings and makes updates based on what makes sense for our team members, our guests and our business. And we focus on doing this in the most thoughtful way.
