Employers have until October 1, 2013 to notify employees that health insurance coverage may be available through an exchange. Even though the exchanges are not yet fully operational, employers must provide a notice to each employee, regardless of whether they’re enrolled in a plan or are employed full-time. Employers must also give the notice to new hires.
