HEALTH REFORM UPDATE: Health Insurance Marketplace/Exchange Notices
The DOL issued two model Notice forms in Technical Release 2013-02 that can be used by employers to satisfy this Notice obligation, one form for employers that offer health coverage to some or all employees and one form for employers that do not offer health coverage to any employees. Both model Notices must be customized to reflect employer-specific information. Use of the model forms is optional. In addition to this initial Notice, a copy of the Notice is supposed to be provided to new employees within 14 days of hire. Also included in the Technical Release is an updated Cobra election notice form revised to include information about coverage available in the Marketplace.
