Obamacare Notice Requirements in Effect

Under the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare, starting today (October 1, 2013), pest management professionals and other employers are required to inform their workers that the new Obamacare health exchanges are available. The notices alert workers that they can get health coverage through the exchanges if their employer's health insurance would cost them too much or wouldn't cover enough of their medical expenses. The notices should also tell employees whether the employer already offers coverage that meets Obamacare's standards. There are separate notices for employers who offer a health plan to some or all employees and for employers who do not offer a health plan.
