This month’s webinar will address compliance priorities for welfare benefit plan sponsors in the coming year. With penalties on the rise (again), and the agencies that monitor and enforce compliance ratcheting up their audit activity, it’s more important than ever to ensure compliance with your benefit plan programs.  We will specifically delve into:

  • Details regarding new requirements for group health plans to cover at-home COVID-19 diagnostic tests.
  • How the recent Supreme Court ruling regarding vaccine mandates will impact companies that require COVID-19 vaccinations.
  • Relevant guidance governing COBRA deadlines and other COVID-related guidance during the ongoing national emergency.
  • The steps employers must take now, and what they will need to be prepared to do throughout the year to grapple with the many new disclosure and communication rules in the No Surprises Act.
  • The action items employer plan sponsors will need to take to understand the audit focus regarding Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act non-quantitative treatment limitations and explain how employers can be prepared to answer new questions the DOL will raise on audit.
  • Additional items such as ACA filings under new IRS guidance regarding enforcement and higher penalties for routine compliance violations.

This 60-minute webinar will help employers stay on top of priority compliance responsibilities.
