Today’s update is providing you with the most current version of the Health Insurance Marketplace notices. These forms are attached and are dated to expire May 31, 2020. Two versions – one for employers that offer health insurance and one for employers that do not offer health insurance. Please be sure to click both links for full details.
One note, the forms include the following language found on the first page under the heading What is the Health Insurance Marketplace?:
“Open enrollment for health insurance coverage through the Marketplace begins in October 2013 for coverage starting as early as January 1, 2014.”
You may want to update the language to reflect that the open enrollment for 2018 is from November 1, 2017 to December 15, 2017.
As a reminder, employers are required to provide the notice to employees within 14 days of an employee’s hire date and upon request.
Please note that EBS is sharing this information to assist you with your compliance planning. We recommend that you contact your legal counsel with specific questions relating to this requirement.
