Employers subject to the Fair Labors Standards Act (FLSA) must provide a notice of coverage options to all current employees no later than October 1, 2013 and to new employees within 14 days of hire beginning on and after October 1, 2013. Additionally, as further discussed below, insurers, third-party administrators (TPAs) and multiemployer plans may send the notice to participants on behalf of employers. The notice describes coverage options and premium tax credits available through the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) marketplaces, due to open October 1, 2013. The Department of Labor (DOL) has provided model notices on the DOL website that employers can use to satisfy this obligation.
