Agencies give ACA relief to employers on March 1 exchange notice deadline, but may thwart use of HRAs

HRS Insight

The Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services and Treasury (the agencies) issued Part XI in their ongoing series of Frequently Asked Questions under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). These new FAQs delay the requirement that employers provide a notice to employees by March 1, 2013 about the health exchanges, premium tax credits and the employer's plan. In addition, the FAQs address Health Reimbursement Arrangements (HRAs) as well as certain Medicare Prescription Drug coverage, fixed indemnity insurance and the payment of PCORI fees.
