  • Administrative Services Agreements for Group Health Plans. Sept. 13, 2018, 12:00–2:00 pm Central (recording available afterwards). A critical component of group health plan administration, administrative services agreements are chock-full of ERISA implications—including fiduciary status and breach issues, plan asset rules, and prohibited transactions. ASAs also intersect with other essential compliance requirements—HIPAA privacy and security, COBRA administration, the Affordable Care Act, and more. We’ll explore key legal issues and consider sample language to help plan sponsors, service providers, and their advisors anticipate and avoid potential pitfalls.
  • Group Health Plans Quarterly Update: 3Q 2018. Sept. 26, 2018, 12:00–2:00 pm Central (recording available afterwards). Get the latest-breaking updates! We’ll deliver the latest legislative, regulatory, and judicial developments affecting employer group health plans and cafeteria plans—plus practical insights from experienced employee benefits attorneys. Whether you’re an employer plan sponsor, service provider, or advisor, tune in for updates on ERISA, COBRA, HIPAA, the ACA, and other federal laws.
