When the Exchange plans (now called Marketplace plans) were begun, the government required that all employers let employees know of its existence and some details. There was some confusion, as employers assumed (and the government did not make it clear either way) that the notice had to be provided annually. Actually, it does not – it only needs to be given to employees when they become eligible for benefits offered by the employer.
Marketplace Notice is not an Annual Notice – but must be provided
