ICHRA Employer Notice
An employee who is offered an ICHRA will generally get a written notice at least 90 days before the beginning of the ICHRA’s plan year. However, employees who become eligible during the plan year, or later than 90 days before the start of the plan year (such as newly hired employees), will get their notice no later than the date on which their coverage under the ICHRA can begin. The final rule requires this “employer notice” to include key information about the ICHRA, such as the dollar amount of the HRA offer, the date that coverage under the HRA may begin, and whether the offer extends to dependents (among other things). The employer notice must also include (among other things): Contact information (including a phone number) for an individual or a group of individuals who participants may contact in order to receive additional information regarding the ICHRA. A statement of availability of an SEP to enroll in or change individual health insurance coverage, through or outside of an Exchange, for the participant and any dependents who newly gain access to the ICHRA and are not already covered by the ICHRA. • A statement that the ICHRA is not a QSEHRA.
