A reminder: one of the requirements of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is that most employers must provide a notice to employees regarding the ACA by October 1, 2013. The notice must be sent to all employees, both full and part-time, either by first class mail or e-mail. However, there are specific rules on when e-mail communication may be used. The notice must be given to new hires within 14 days of hire. There are two notices, one for employers who provide health insurance and one for employers who do not provide health insurance.
The ACA is very complex, and beyond the scope of the “EAC Hotline”. If you have questions regarding your obligations you may contact your health care provider, insurance broker or your local attorney for information and guidance.
