Employer Posting Requirements for Obamacare

Sep 24, 2013

Obamacare, aka the Affordable Care Act (ACA), adds new protections to make health coverage affordable and easy. Some of these changes are already in effect, with most of the remaining changes taking effect in January 2014.
We do not yet know how the ACA/Obamacare will impact our clients as many unanswered questions remain.  Regardless, the Dept of Labor has provided employers with two model notices...

Please note that the employer must provide a notice of coverage options to all employees, regardless of whether they are full- or part-time employees or whether the employees currently participate in any employer-provided health plan.  

This link is for employers that offer health coverage to some or all employees

This link is for employers that do not offer health care coverage

The good news: employers do not have to provide notice to employees' dependents nor to retirees. :-)
