Is Your Corporate Preventive Health Program a Compliance Risk?
NEW YORK, May 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- EHE International, the leader in preventive care and executive health programs, together with renowned employee benefits law firm, the Groom Law Group, a Washington, D.C. law firm, today announced they will jointly host a free webinar titled, "Preventive Health Programs: 5 Ways You May Be At Compliance Risk," on Tuesday, June 14, from 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
Christine Keller and Brigen Winters, both partners at Groom Law Group and experts in employee health benefits, and Roy Ramthun, chief of policy and regulatory affairs for EHE, will guide participants through primary areas of compliance risk for preventive health programs, how to navigate new regulatory rules and requirements, and tips for keeping your company's health benefits compliant.
"There's a lot of confusion in corporate HR offices when it comes to determining if certain health programs are at compliance risk under the Affordable Care Act and other federal laws," said Ramthun. "The laws can be complicated and confusing, but ignorance of the law is no excuse. Corporate HR professionals must understand the important issues. This webinar will help those responsible for compliance better understand the requirements and risks."
"We're looking to educate HR professionals on what the laws are and how they've been interpreted," said Winters. "A lot of people don't even know what questions to ask when it comes to compliance issues and risk, and that can end up being a huge problem. We hope to clarify these issues in our upcoming webinar."
Key questions this webinar will answer include:
- How much risk does your company face if you are not in compliance?
- Are your "executive health" benefits discriminatory in any way?
- Which benefits may be exempt from some of the requirements under the law?
