  • Health Care Reform Communication Requirements

    As we all know by now, the Health Reform Legislation taking effect in 2010 and continuing through 2014 makes several significant changes in health care benefits and administration.   The law also has several requirements regarding notices and communications to employees starting this year.   The Department Of Labor has issued some sample language in at least three areas that take effect, for most employers, on Jan. 1, 2011: Annual and lifetime limit changes, Revised dependent eligibility for older kids and Primary care physician designation and OB/GYN self referral change.

    Please review information from the websites below and develop your own communication pieces to advise your employees of the changes.  Sample language, and other resources are available at http://www.dol.gov/ebsa/
