There are several benefit notices that employers are required to provide to employees either annually or during their initial enrollment. Open enrollment time can be a good time to provide these. Some benefit notices apply to all group health plans while others only apply to certain plans, based on plan design and coverage.
Some of the benefit notices include:
- Medicare Part D Notice
- Summary of Benefits and Coverage
- HIPAA Privacy Notice
- WHCRA Notice
- CHIP Notice
- Notice of Patient Protections
- Wellness Program Notices
In addition to providing required benefit notices, remember to communicate any plan design changes to your employees for 2020 through the updated summary plan description or a summary of material modifications.
 Please check with your medical insurance carrier, they will provide some of these notices to your employees.
