US DOL Marketplace Notice Updated Again
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires employers to notify all workers, regardless of their benefits eligibility status, about the availability of the Health Insurance Marketplaces. All employers, with limited exceptions, are required to distribute the notice to new employees within 14 days of hire. Though there are no penalties for failing to do so. The Department of Labor (DOL) provides customizable model notices to inform workers of their health insurance coverage options.
Updated model notices for employers that offer a health plan and that do not offer a health plan are available on the DOL website in English and Spanish.
The model notices have an expiration date of October 31, 2023. The previous versions expired on July 31, 2023, August 31, 2023, and September 30, 2023.
