Recent Developments in the Welfare Benefit Plan Regulatory Environment: Weathering the Storm of New Regulations
Recent Developments in the Welfare Benefit Plan Regulatory Environment
April 18, 2023
9:00 am - 11:00 am
The last few years have provided a dizzying array of rules and regulations affecting health and welfare plans. From the recently announced end of the National Emergency and Outbreak Period to complicated reporting requirements, employers and plan administrators are being confronted with a blizzard of new items and anticipated changes to add to their already extensive “to do” list. And the snow has not subsided. We are still awaiting even more guidance and court decisions (addressing, for example, the Consolidated Appropriations Act’s transparency rules and the issue of whether plans are required to cover gender-affirming services.)
Fortunately, Spring has arrived. And this 2-hour seminar will not only provide an overview of these myriad recent developments, but also help employers navigate this difficult terrain.
Sign up now to reserve your seat.
Topics to be Covered Include:
- The end of the National Emergency/Outbreak Period and its effect on health and welfare plans
