Marketplace Model Policies
Starting October 1, 2013 the federal government required employers to notify all employees of the existence of the Health Insurance Marketplaces. The Department of Labor (DOL) issued two Model Notices - one for employers that offer health coverage and one for employers that do not offer health coverage - to assist employers in the notification process. The Medical Trust has partially pre-populated the Model Notice for employers that offer health coverage through the Medical Trust. Group Administrators must complete the Model Notice and distribute it to employees. The Medical Trust also developed some optional communication materials that Group Administrators may wish to distribute to employees with the Model Notice.
- New Health Insurance Marketplace Coverage Options and Your Health Coverage form to provide your employees with information about their health benefits. For your convenience, the Medical Trust has prepopulated the employee and dependent eligibility information.
- Model cover letter for employees participating in the DHP
- Instructions for completing the Model Notice
- FAQs for employees
- Health Benefits Waiver form
In the future, DOL may issue revised documents, regulations or requirements. The documents on this page will be updated accordingly.
Health benefits are offered through plans maintained by Church Pension Group Services Corporation (doing business as The Episcopal Church Medical Trust), 19 East 34th Street, New York, NY 10016.
