Earlier this year, the IRS, HHS and the DOL released final regulations under the Affordable Care Act’s “Summary of Benefits and Coverage” (SBC) requirement.

The SBC is a summary of health plan benefits and participant cost-sharing requirements. It also includes a glossary of common health plan terms to give participants a clear and comprehensible understanding on what their plan covers.

Plan sponsors and insurers are required to begin issuing SBCs as early as September 23, 2012. The final rules contain stiff penalties for failure to comply. Are you ready?

The Knowledge Group has assembled a distinguished group of compliance experts to help employer plan sponsors and insurance companies comply with the new rules. The panelists will share their expertise in a LIVE two-hour Webcast.
