Share

A revised model notice is now available for all employers that provide group health coverage in states with premium assistance through the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), or Medicaid, to inform employees of potential opportunities for assistance in obtaining coverage.

The employer CHIP notice must be furnished to all employees annually before the start of each plan year. An employer may provide the notice applicable to the state in which an employee resides concurrent with the furnishing of:

  • Materials notifying the employee of health plan eligibility;
  • Materials provided to the employee in connection with an open season or election process conducted under the plan; or
  • The summary plan description.

The revised model notice includes information on how employees can contact their state for additional information and how to apply for premium assistance, with information current as of January 31, 2017.
