You will learn how to properly address and manage the web of compliance requirements your employee health benefits package is subject to. 

The Affordable Care Act, and it's associated employer mandate, brought a renewed focus on benefit plan compliance requirements. It wasn't just that the health insurance package had to meet certain guidelines – you suddenly had to comply with a complex web of regulations that required a new, more holistic approach to managing benefit offerings. We'll examine the lessons learned, and discuss how to build a robust, compliant benefit management plan that can adapt to changes in the future. This session will help you:

  • Learn about the web of regulatory requirements that apply to employee health benefit plans as a result of the government's reform efforts.
  • Understand how both HR and Benefits compliance need to be addressed as a single effort, not in silos as is traditional in most companies.
  • Gain knowledge in how to build a holistic, compliant employee benefit management plan that addresses these compliance requirements.
