- Glossary: Exemption Certificate Number [ECN]A number the Marketplace provides when you qualify for a health insurance exemption. When you fill out an exemption application, the Marketplace will review it and determine if you qualify. The Marketplace will mail you a notice of the exemption eligibility result. If you qualify for an exemption, the notice will include your unique identifier, called the exemption certificate number (ECN). Each member of your household who qualifies for the exemption will get their own ECN. You’ll need your ECN when you file your federal taxes for the year you don’t have coverage.
- Glossary: Family and Medical Leave Act [FMLA]A federal law that guarantees up to 12 weeks of job protected leave for certain employees when they need to take time off due to serious illness or disability, to have or adopt a child, or to care for another family member. When on leave under FMLA, you can continue coverage under your job-based plan.
