The new Federal Health Care Reform Law requires all employers to notify their employees about the availability of public health insurance exchanges before October 1, 2013.

On Wednesday, May 8, 2013, model notices were released for employers to provide to their employees. By providing your employees with these notices, it satisfies the law’s requirement so it is extremely important you comply with the law and distribute to them.

The notices are slightly different depending on whether you offer a health insurance plan or not. Below are links to the notices.

I offer a health insurance plan for my employees
I don’t offer health insurance for my employees

Both notices explain how the exchanges will operate and the conditions that need to be satisfied for employees to obtain federal premium subsidies to purchase exchange-provided coverage.

Additional information about the health care insurance exchanges can be found on  or through the Department of Health and Human Services.
