DOL Audits of Health Plans
The Department of Labor has significantly increased its audits of group health plans. These audits now cover compliance with parts of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, in addition to the many other federal laws that apply to group health plans. Now is the time for employers to be sure they understand what they will need to provide if they receive an audit letter and to take steps to fill any gaps they may have.Tuesday, June 11, 2013 – 2 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. PT
During this 90 minute intermediate level webinar we will discuss what the updated DOL audit letter typically requests and provide guidance on how to respond if you receive an audit letter. We will also cover best practices for compliance and documentation to help you be as prepared as possible if an audit does occur. The presentation slides will be posted the day before the webinar.
