Nearly all employers must distribute a notice of coverage options to their employees no later than October 1, 2013.  After that date, employers must distribute the notice to all new hires within 14 days of their start date. These changes are part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.  To assist employers in their preparation.  The Department of Labor is hosting a webcast.
