Interaction of Health Care Reform With Other Laws
1 hour 30 minutes
Increase your confidence as you address the complex interaction of ACA and other federal and state laws.
Human resource professionals, plan sponsors, benefits consultants, health care issuers, and plan administrators face an ever-changing legal landscape as they attempt to answer questions, engage in ACA-compliant plan designs, and minimize litigation risk. Changes in Congress and changes in administrations often result in wholesale change, while Supreme Court decisions sometimes bend toward uniform administration of employer health care plans and other times tolerate state and local variations that complicate the national administration of such plans. Added to that quicksand, the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic have resulted in additional uncertainty. This topic is intended to increase your confidence as you attempt to address the complex interaction of ACA – now over a decade old – and other federal and state laws and to translate the issues at play before Congress, the executive, and the courts into compliant health care plan design and administration.
