This hybrid New York City and Live Webcast program will focus primarily on the range of ERISA considerations applicable to health plans, from documentary compliance through health plan operational issues.

Contextual Background:

Although ERISA applies to health and welfare plans as well as to retirement plans, for years since its enactment, ERISA-related related activities and litigations focused on retirement plans. In recent years, especially following the enactment of the of the Affordable Care Act, there has been increased regulatory and judicial scrutiny focused on ERISA’s health plan-related compliance requirements and fiduciary provisions, and liability for failure to comply.

This program is in line with the increased focus and considerations around ERISA’s application to healthcare plans and compliance with ERISA regulations.

The program is intended for in-house counsel, outside attorneys and other allied professionals who advise on ERISA, and health and welfare plans.
