Updated ACA Marketplace Notices for Employers

The Department of Labor (DOL) recently issued a revised model notice for the Affordable Care Act (ACA) Notice of Exchanges. These notices provide employees with information about the health insurance exchanges, and describes the availability of a premium tax credit and the effects of obtaining coverage through the Marketplace.

Regardless if you offer health coverage to employees or not, all employers covered under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), which include retail hardware and lumber businesses, are required to notify employees of the health insurance marketplace. A direct link to the model notices are below. You may also find the notices on our Members Only website anytime, by logging in and clicking on “Business Forms, Templates, and Signs”.

If you do not offer health coverage to your employees, the following model notice may be used. https://www.dol.gov/sites/default/files/ebsa/laws-and-regulations/laws/affordable-care-act/for-employers-and-advisers/model-notice-for-employers-who-do-not-offer-a-health-plan.doc

If you do offer health coverage to some or all of your employees, the following model notice may be used. https://www.dol.gov/sites/default/files/ebsa/laws-and-regulations/laws/affordable-care-act/for-employers-and-advisers/model-notice-for-employers-who-offer-a-health-plan-to-some-or-all-employees.doc

Hardware stores should plan to use the updated notices, which expire May 31, 2020, to distribute to newly hired employees as well as annually to all employees (typically during the health insurance open enrollment period if health coverage is offered to employees).

Contact Andrea Ramage at andrear@midwesthardware.com or 800-888-1817, ext. 365, if you have any questions regarding the Marketplace notices.
