On Oct. 20, 2015, the District of Columbia (DC) Department of Insurance published Bulletin 15-IB-07-10/20. The new bulletin relates to the definition of “small employer” under DC law, and states that as a result of the PACE Act, DC will retain the definition of small employer as an employer with 50 or fewer employees. The bulletin and definition apply for plan years that begin on or after Jan. 1, 2016. The bulletin also rescinds Bulletin 15-IB-05-04/28, “Small Employer” Transitional Policy for the 2016 Plan Year (issued April 28, 2015, and covered in the May 5, 2015, edition of Compliance Corner). The bulletin contains contact information for questions or concerns relating to the bulletin. Employers in the 51-100 group in DC should also work with their carriers concerning next steps with regard to the bulletin.
