NRA tool helps with health insurance exchange notification

Have you notified your employees about new government-run health insurance exchanges?

The 2010 health care law requires most U.S. employers to give their employees written notice about new online marketplaces that are set to open in every state by Oct. 1. The exchanges offer Americans new options for obtaining health insurance for 2014.

Employers must notify existing employees about exchanges by Oct. 1, 2013 and thereafter to new employees at hire. Starting in 2014, employers must provide the notice to employees within 14 days of hiring.

The notice requirement applies to all employers covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act. Among other information, the FLSA notice must tell employees how to access exchanges/marketplaces. The FLSA notice also must let employees know they may be eligible for federal tax help to buy health plans through exchanges, and about the difference in tax treatment between employer-sponsored coverage and exchange coverage.

The National Restaurant Association has created a member-exclusive tool to help restaurateurs notify their employees about exchanges. The online tool, at Restaurant.org/Notify, lets employers create a customized portal where they can direct employees for the FLSA-required notice, and track the employees who have been notified.
