While no major benefits legislation is expected to be passed in 2018, the regulatory agencies are busy introducing new rules. The IRS continues to try to collect employer penalties under §4980H and the AARP – EEOC court case could force employers to rethink their wellness strategies. This webinar will bring employers up-to-date on important developments including association health plan regulations, rules expanding the use of health reimbursement arrangements (HRAs), IRS collection efforts, and the status of the AARP – EEOC wellness case.
