New Crawford Advisors Benefits Webinar: Wellness Plans in the Wake of Obamacare – Prior Rules vs. Final Rules


Hunt Valley, MD (PRWEB) April 14, 2014

Join Crawford Advisors senior counsel for this on demand webinar, and learn how PPACA changed the landscape for many employers, exposing plans to unlimited claims. High claimants expose plan sponsors to extraordinary costs as 20% of plan claimants can drive 80% of plan costs. This metric is compelling plan sponsors to “bend their cost curve.” The DOL, Treasury and HHS has now published Final Rules under incentives for nondiscriminatory wellness programs in group health plans. Employers must understand these final rules, how they impact their plan design and employee contributions, and the administrative burdens associated with their implementation. Join Senior Counsel, Patrick Haynes, as he discusses this important topic and addresses these questions:

Are there plans that are exempt from these rules?
What are employees’ rights under these plans?
What rules apply to your company’s 10,000-steps walking initiative?
Prior rules vs. Final rules – what has changed?
How can I maximize penalties for employees refusing to participate in wellness plans?
How do the Final rules and PPACA’s Affordability Test work together?
