Federal and state exchanges (marketplaces) go live on Oct. 1 and begin offering coverage to individuals and small employers effective Jan.1, 2014. Even though large employers will not be purchasing their group health plans though a public exchange, employees will still have questions as they try to decide whether they should stay on their employer plan or purchase individual health insurance. This webinar will help make sense of the options available to small groups and individuals. We will also discuss what employers need to know in order to answer their employees’ questions.

Model Notice of Exchange: Notice to New Employees

Employers subject to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) must provide notice to employees of Marketplace coverage by October 1, 2013. The technical release required employers to provide the Marketplace notice to all employees, regardless of plan enrollment or eligibility status or of part-time or full-time status. However, employers are not required to provide a separate notice to spouses or dependents eligible for coverage under the plan.

While all current employees should have received the new Marketplace notice no later than October 1, 2013, employers will also be required to distribute the notice to new employees on the start date or within 14 days of the start date.
