Top 10 Benefit Plan Compliance Issues
Ashley Gillihan, Esq., Partner at Alston & Bird
Health and welfare plans were already subject to a number of federal rules and regulations before the ACA. Then, the ACA came and brought with it a litany of rules and regulations—making life very difficult for employer/plan sponsors and benefit advisors. Moreover, the rules seem to change weekly and failure to comply can result in significant liability. This webinar will attempt to boil down the Top 10 compliance issues for health plans.
The top 10 issues that we will address include:
- What is cost share that must be counted towards the Out of Pocket Maximum?
- Can an employer pay for an employee’s health insurance that was purchased in the individual market?
- What ACA related reporting requirements do employers have with respect to the health plan?
- How does the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act impact my health plan’s benefits?
- What rules impact my wellness programs?
