Responsibility for distribution of SBCs (Kaiser)
Under the Affordable Care Act, Kaiser small business employers are required to provide SBCs to participants and beneficiaries of the Kaiser Permanente plans that they offer. You may provide SBCs in either a paper or electronic format (read more about the safe harbor rule with electronic distribution).
For SBCs or a Glossary of Medical and Health Coverage Terms in Spanish or Chinese, go to the KP.org online literature order and tracking system.
