Although the employer mandate provision has been delayed, October 1, 2013 is still the deadline for notices required by the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA).
Before October 1, all employers covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act are required to provide current employees with notices regarding new health insurance marketplace coverage options—in California, that’s Covered California.
The notices inform the employee of the existence of the marketplace, a description of services, how to contact the marketplace and other required information.
Also starting October 1, employers must provide the notices to each new hire within 14 days of the employee beginning work.
