Creditable Coverage Disclosures Due to CMS by March 1 for Calendar-Year Plans
Employers offering prescription drug coverage to Medicare-eligible individuals via a calendar-year plan generally must complete an online disclosure to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) by March 1. This disclosure must report whether the coverage offered is "creditable," meaning it is expected to pay, on average, as much as the standard Medicare prescription drug coverage. Employers offering creditable coverage via a non-calendar-year plan must also comply with the disclosure requirement within 60 days of the beginning of the plan year.
OSHA Injury and Illness Recordkeeping and Reporting Requirements
Many employers with more than 10 employees are required to keep a record of serious work-related injuries and illnesses. (Certain low-risk industries are exempted.) Minor injuries requiring first aid only do not need to be recorded. This information helps employers, workers and OSHA evaluate the safety of a workplace, understand industry hazards, and implement worker protections to reduce and eliminate hazards –preventing future workplace injuries and illnesses.
This form must be posted during February 1 - April 20, 2019
