Warner attorneys Norbert Kugele and Stephanie Grant presented a webinar on the legal developments affecting health and welfare plans since the beginning of 2020 and the strategic decisions employers must make in the face of uncertainty during the COVID-19 pandemic. Topics addressed were: (1) FFCRA and the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act); (2) the deadline exception periods for COBRA, HIPAA and claims appeals; (3) the relaxation of rules governing mid-year election changes and FSA claims periods; (4) benefits for employees on reduced-work schedules, furloughs and employees returning to work; (5) new regulations on prescription drug coupon programs; and (6) communicating temporary plan changes to employees.
