Welfare Plans & Consumer Driven Health Plans
The rapid increase in health care costs has forced employers to face the difficulties of providing competitive group benefits while simultaneously attempting to control the costs associated with maintaining an optimal work force. The development and implementation by an employer of a cost effective, comprehensive mix of welfare plans, such as group health, life and disability, cafeteria, HRA, HSA, and severance plans, is a key ingredient in successfully achieving these fundamental business objectives.
Our attorneys are experienced in ERISA and Internal Revenue Code welfare benefit plan design and compliance issues, COBRA, HIPAA (privacy, security, and portability) compliance issues, cafeteria plans and health care cost containment programs.
