Reminder: Share CHIPRA notice with employees

The Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009 (CHIPRA) requires employers to provide employees with a disclosure notice regarding group health plans. Under CHIPRA, any employer who maintains a group health plan in a state that provides Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) assistance must provide notification of assistance opportunities to each employee residing in those states. Contact your professional consultant or legal counsel with questions regarding your disclosure obligations under CHIPRA. Get more information and see a model of the notice to use.
