Employers that provide insurance coverage in states with premium assistance through Medicaid or CHIP must inform employees of potential opportunities for assistance in obtaining health coverage.  The CHIP notice must be provided annually before the start of each plan year.  Most employers are given the model CHIP notice from their employee benefits consultant.  An employer may provide the notice applicable to the state in which an employee resides concurrent with the furnishing of either: (1) health plan eligibility materials; (2) Open enrollment materials; or (3) in the Summary Plan description.

The updated model notice includes information on how employees can contact their state for additional information and how to apply for premium assistance, with information current as of January 31, 2017.
