AUTO INDUSTRY NEWS AT A GLANCE

Listed here are several articles pertaining to the
auto industry in general that appeared recently in newspapers and other media outlets across the nation.



…more news articles are included at the end of this issue.




GUIDANCE / MODEL FORMS AVAILABLE FOR HEALTH CARE REFORM LAW NOTICES

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has provided “temporary guidance” regarding the written notice employers are required to provide to their employees under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). PPACA requires that applicable employers must provide each employee with a written notice providing the employee with information about the state and federally-facilitated health insurance exchanges and how to request assistance, describing the availability of a premium tax credit (if applicable) and outlining the implications for the employee if they choose to purchase a qualified health plan through an exchange. The notice requirement was originally scheduled to take effect on March 1, 2013, but subsequent guidance has indicated that the timing for distribution of notices will be the late summer or fall of 2013* in coordination with the open enrollment period for exchanges.

Along with technical release, the following model notices have also been issued by the DOL:

Dealers should consult their health care consultant, insurance carrier or other outside professional to determine which form is appropriate for your dealership, and how to properly complete and distribute that form to your employees. Click here for DOL’s Technical Release No. 2013-02.

*Revised Timing for New Notices:  Employers are required to provide the notice to each new employee at the time of hiring beginning October 1, 2013. With respect to employees who are current employees before October 1, 2013, employers are required to provide the notice not later than October 1, 2013.

Note that CADA will be conducting training sessions in August on this and other Health Care Reform impending mandates; dates and times will be announced soon.
