Compliance: Open Enrollment Benefit Notices for 2020

2020 open enrollment benefit notices

1 minute read

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[1].

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.

Download the bulletin for templates and model notices for your use.

[1] Please check with your medical insurance carrier, they will provide some of these notices to your employees.
