Are You Drowning in Health and Welfare Compliance Issues? We Can Help!
David A. Guadagnoli presented "Are You Drowning in Health and Welfare Compliance Issues? Help is on the Way!," at a program sponsored by the New England Employee Benefits Council.
This half-day session was designed for employers and consultants looking to expand their understanding of the various laws that apply to welfare benefit arrangements and the ever-growing list of required disclosures for them. Mr. Guadagnoli explained which welfare arrangements are subject to ERISA and what that means, including a review of documentation and Form 5500 filing obligations. He also provided a review of welfare benefit-related notices required under federal laws, including COBRA, HIPAA and the ACA, along with an overview of the currently applicable nondiscrimination testing requirements that apply to many existing welfare benefits and cafeteria plans.
