(US-MN) Spouse excluded from employer health plan

news

I have a colleague working for a large U.S. company in Minnesota. The company classifies him as part time, but he has worked sufficient hours to be seen as full-time under the ACA and so has been offered a health plan under the ACA employer mandate. The plan offered to him is different than the plans they offer to the normal full time employees, which include coverage for spouses. My colleague was told that his plan offering explicitly excludes coverage for spouses. I have found one source indicating that employers are not allowed to exclude spouses for some employees and not others (https://www.lexology.com/library/detail.aspx?g=c00716ec-b43f-4975-88c2-80c3d2b7642b). I am wondering if anyone here knows more about this or can point me to the relevant statute to determine if this is allowed or not.
