The Affordable Care Act (ACA) provisions that require large employers to offer group healthcare coverage to their employees, or pay penalty assessments if they do not, go into effect in 2014. Since the U.S. Supreme Court ruling upholding the validity of the ACA, the Internal Revenue Service, Department of Labor, and Department of Health and Human Services have begun to issue guidance on the ACA's implications for employers. Importantly, during 2013, employers will need to prepare to meet the new requirements and to provide notices to all of their employees regarding coverage options available under Exchanges.
