With a renewed focus on healthcare in advance of the 2020 elections, high performing employers must be prepared to navigate the potential changes on the horizon for group health plans. Attend this session to learn more about the latest legislative and litigation trends affecting group health plans, including an overview of the healthcare-related bills working their way through Congress, updates on the status of Employer Shared Responsibility enforcement, evolving wellness program requirements, and more.
