Upcoming Webinar: Wellness Plan Regulations Update
August 18, 2016 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm
The EEOC has issued its final wellness regulations regarding compliance with the ADA and GINA. The rules contain a new notice requirement and some changes from the previously issued proposed rules, including adjustments to incentive limit calculations and the application of such limits. Many of the EEOC rules go into effect for plan years beginning Jan. 1, 2017. Now is the time to look at your wellness plans to make sure they are in compliance with both the EEOC regulations and the existing HIPAA wellness rules.

Presented by:
Bob Radecki, President, Benefit Comply, LLC and
Regan Debban, J.D., MBA, Senior Consultant, Benefit Comply, LLC
