Model PPACA Notices Issued for Distribution

These notices must be given out prior to Oct. 1, 2013.

In accordance with the health care reform law enacted in 2010, the U.S. Department of Labor has issued tools to encourage compliance for business owners. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) requires employers to notify their workers about the status and availability of health insurance by Oct. 1, 2013.

Thus, DOL has issued model notices that businesses can distribute to both full and part-time employees.

Two types of models were issued: one for businesses that do provide insurance coverage and ones that do not. They can be distributed either by first-class mail or electronically. For employees hired after Oct. 1, 2013, the notices must be given within 14 days of their hire date.
