This week, the Department of Labor issued Technical Release 2013-02 which provides
temporary guidance regarding the requirement for employers to notify employees of coverage
options available through the Health Insurance Marketplace (Exchanges).
Employers are required to provide the Notice no later than October 1, 2013.
The Notice must include, among other things, information and a description of the services
provided by an Exchange and information that the employee may be eligible for a premium tax
It seems to me rumors of delays are misplaced if this guidance is being released now; i.e., the
unveiling of Exchanges must be imminent.
Bring ‘em on!
