Model Employer Children's Health Insurance Program Notice
Feb 15, 2010
On February 4, 2009, President Obama signed the Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA) of 2009. CHIPRA includes a requirement that the Departments of Labor and Health and Human Services develop a model notice for employers to use to inform employees of potential opportunities currently available in the State in which the employee resides for group health plan premium assistance under Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). The Department of Labor was required to provide the model notice to employers within one year of CHIPRA's enactment.
Through a notice in the February 4, 2010 FEDERAL REGISTER, the Department's Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA) announces the availability of the Model Employer CHIP Notice. The notice provides the "form and content of notice" as well as the "timing and delivery of the notice" while outlining the requirements for addition of state-specific information.
The model Employer CHIP Notice is now available in this electronic format.
