What’s in store for ’24? Key Health Plan Compliance Requirements

Looking ahead to 2024, employers face a growing mountain of regulatory and legal compliance requirements and deadlines related to the administration of their group health plans. During this complimentary one-hour webinar, employee benefits attorneys Brandon Long and Melissa Cottle assist health plan employer-sponsors in understanding which plans are affected by each requirement, the “why” behind each issue, the steps plan sponsors must take to comply, and the all-important timelines and deadlines that plan fiduciaries, administrators and other benefits professionals will need to be focused on throughout 2024. These include:

  • Mental health parity comparative analysis – Effective now, with more proposed rules pending
  • The potential impact of future pharmacy benefit manager (PBM) legislation on group plan costs and cost-shifting
  • Online shopping tool required for all covered items and services — effective January 1
  • Prescription drug reporting — Due June 1 for all group plans
  • Public disclosure of prescription drug information as machine-readable files
  • Gag clause attestation — Due annually December 31 for self-funded plans
