Employer Notice to Employees of Marketplace Coverage Option
Your employer must provide you with a written notice with information about the public health insurance marketplace, or federally facilitated marketplace, including a description of services provided and how to contact the federally facilitated marketplace to request assistance. This will be provided when the requirement first becomes effective, and after that, notice will be provided to only new hires.
- The notice should also inform you of your potential eligibility for premium assistance and cost-sharing reduction if your employer does not offer coverage or the coverage is unaffordable.
- Originally set to begin March 1, 2013, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) expects that the timing for the distribution of notices will now be later in 2013, which should coincide with the federally facilitated marketplace open enrollment period.
- You will receive a notice from your employer, if your employer is subject to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
