Employer Notice Regarding Children’s Health Insurance Program

December 2010

As a reminder, employers sponsoring group health plans are required to notify employees of potential opportunities currently available in the State in which employees reside for group health plan premium assistance under Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program ("CHIP").
