The DOL has issued model language for addressing health reform changes

by on
in Employee Benefits Program,Human Resources

Use the DOL's model language to tell employees about the most recent mandates of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Notice must be provided no later than the first day of plan years beginning on or after Sept. 23, 2010.

Self-insured employers and group health plans must now inform employees that:

  • Adult children of insured employees are eligible for coverage until their 26th birthdays.
  • There are no longer any lifetime limits on the dollar value of covered health care.
  • Employees are free to choose any primary care physician who is accepting patients through a plan’s network.
  • A plan has decided to maintain “grandfathered” status under the law. (See "Understanding the new 'grandfathering rules.")

For links to download the model language, see "The New Health Care Reform Law."
