Changes To HEP Requirements

Recently, the Comptroller's Office sent notice to all employees regarding changes to the HEP requirements.  Basically, the new requirements are far easier to remember and make it easier to obtain compliance with your healthcare requirements.  Some of the changes will be implemented for 2024 and some will become effective calendar year 2025.
