ACA Exchange and Marketplace Notifications
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), through the CCIIOO, released an FAQ (download here: Employer-Notice-FAQ-9-18-15) for ACA Exchange and Marketplace Notifications. It has information about the need for all Exchanges on Healthcare.gov to notify certain employers if one or more employees received a subsidy on the Exchange. The notification process will be phased in, with the Exchanges first sending notices to employers with employees who received a subsidy for at least one month in 2016 and who provided a complete employer mailing address. CMS will be working to determine the next stage of the phase-in. For now, notifications will come via mail, but CMS is considering using email notifications in the future. An employer has 90 days from the notice to appeal, and the appeal request form will be available on Healthcare.gov.
