Preparing for a Department of Labor Audit in 2022
With new rules coming into effect, such as provisions of the Consolidated Appropriations Act and No Surprises Act, and new scrutiny under existing laws such as Mental Health Parity, preparation is key.
There is no cost to attend this event. Seats are limited to availability. Once registered, additional event details for the day of the event will be sent to you via email.
Join ClearPath for the next Clear60 event, as we help plan sponsors, service providers, and participants understand the DOL’s enforcement priorities for 2022, how to avoid common mistakes, and what needs to be done to prepare for an audit before the DOL comes knocking.
During this session we will discuss:
- Review the changes made to Form 1095 reporting and the shift from good-faith transitional relief to enforcement.
- Refresh understanding of the Mental Health Parity rules, especially for self-funded plans.
- Talk about the DOL focus on non-quantitative treatment limitations and autism spectrum disorder treatments.
- Review how to avoid common audit pitfalls, including how to avoid accidentally creating a MEWA.
- Offer tips on how to be ready for a DOL audit at a moment’s notice.
