PPACA update 1-24-2013

On Thursday 1/24/2013, the Department of Labor, in conjunction with the Department of Health and Human Services and the IRS, issued FAQ XI in regards to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).   Most notably, the FAQ allows for a delay in the requirement that employers notify employees of the existence of the health insurance exchanges.  This requirement would have applied as of 3/1/2013, but is now delayed upon issuance of further guidance.  You can read the FAQ’s here:  http://www.dol.gov/ebsa/faqs/faq-aca11.html
