Two versions of a model exchange notice have been issued by the Department Of Labor which also include basic directions on the requirements of distributing this notice. The first notice pertains to employers who provide coverage, whereas the other notice is for employers who do not offer coverage. The deadline for administering these notices is October 1st, 2013.
Basic employer information is required for both notices. This information will provide data necessary for the employee if they decide to receive exchange coverage. However, the notice does not need to include state-specific information pertaining to the exchange. For your convenience, the links below offer instructions and information on the model notices; and we will keep you updated with more information next week or as this is updated.
