PPACA Update: Employers' Deadline To Provide Notice Of Health Care Exchanges Postponed


Late last week, the Departments of Labor, Treasury, and Health and Human Services issued a new Frequently Asked Question (“FAQ”) page addressing implementation questions under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (“PPACA”).  Of particular note in the latest FAQ is the Departments’ announcement is the delayed effective date for the written notice of Exchange requirements under PPACA. Originally, PPACA required employers to issue specific written notices regarding the existence of Exchanges to new and current employees effective March 1, 2013. This deadline has now been delayed until late summer or fall of 2013. Additional guidance, which may include model notice language, likely will be forthcoming. 

Stay tuned – and look for future PPACA updates on this blog. Additionally, if you have any questions regarding PPACA requirements, please do not hesitate to contact any member of our Labor & Employment Practice Group.
