Nonprofits Must Give Staff Notice of Health Insurance Options by October 1, 2013

Under the Affordable Care Act, all nonprofits with paid staff are required to let their employees know about options available to them regarding access to health insurance. You need to provide this notice in writing to your staff by October 1, 2013. The National Council of Nonprofits has developed a summary of the notice requirement, including the details of what you need to include and samples of notice you can give your employees.

The U.S. Department of Labor has provided model notice (in both English and Spanish) for employers that offer health insurance coverage and for those that don’t. If you use this notice, you’ll need to add information about your nonprofit in Part B.

The National Council of Nonprofits also has developed resources on:
Key provisions of the Affordable Care Act and how they affect charitable nonprofits, small and large;
Frequently asked questions about how the Affordable Care Act affects charitable nonprofits; and
• Information about the Small Business Health Care Tax Credit, which is available to some small nonprofits with fewer than 25 employees.
