Do private insurance policies have to be labeled to show whether they are Minimum Essential Coverage?

All health insurers and employer-sponsored group health plans must provide people with a Summary of Benefits and Coverage, which uses a standard format to outline the benefits, cost-sharing and coverage limits of plans. The Summary of Benefits and Coverage must also say whether the plan meets minimum value and counts as minimum essential coverage, although in 2014, that information may be provided separately in a cover letter.
