Questions abound about the Affordable Care Act’s exchanges that launched this week. If an employer handed out the exchanges notices as required, they have provided employees with the information necessary to go to the exchanges and price coverage.

I don’t recommend that employers should try to answer specific questions about the exchanges, but they should share information about their employer-sponsored plans if asked.  When the dust settles, I also recommend that employers check out the exchanges themselves to see what the rates and options are in their geographic areas just to get a feel for what employees are seeing.  Information like this can be very valuable when developing a business plan for dealing with the 2015 mandate.
