This webinar will:

  • Discuss which health care reform mandates and HIPAA portability rules retiree-only coverage is exempted from
  • Discuss whether retirees that are included in a health plan covering active employees can be treated differently than active employees (such as different contributions and benefits) and the nondiscrimination rules that should be taken into account
  • Discuss the effect of offering retiree coverage on an employer’s COBRA obligations
  • Discuss how the Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) rules and Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) apply to retirees in contrast with individuals with current employment status
  • Provide a broad overview of the retiree drug subsidy program
