On May 8, 2013 the DOL Employee Benefits Security Administration provided temporary guidance for employers on this exchange notification requirement in Department of Labor Technical Release 2013-02. The technical release provides information for employers about the requirement that it notify employees by October 1, 2013 about coverage options in exchanges or health insurance marketplaces. The technical release also contains two alternative model notices that employers may (but are not required to) use to provide notification. We have provided the notices below for your convenience.
NOTE: The DOL released FAQ on September 11, 2013 stating that although employers SHOULD provide the Exchange Notice, there will be no fine or penalty under the law for failing to provide it.
