Client Alert: New Non-Discrimination Rules for Insured Health Plans
The recently passed health care reform law - The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act - includes provisions that prohibit discriminating in favor of highly compensated employees and former employees under a fully insured group health plan that is not grandfathered under the new law. While this has historically been the case for self-insured plans, the non-discrimination rules did not previously apply to fully insured plans.
The Compensation and Employment Group of the firm has prepared a brief Client Alert highlighting how this prohibition may apply to your company, explaining enforcement of the prohibition and suggesting steps to be taken to address the new rules.
