Virtual Event

On Thursday, April 28 from 12PM-1PM join Verrill Partner Christopher S. Lockman, the The Healthcare Purchaser Alliance of Maine , and Manufacturers Association of Maine for a discussion regarding how certain aspects of the Transparency in Coverage Final Regulations and Consolidated Appropriations Act (CAA), 2021 affect employer-sponsored health plans and their vendor relationships. In addition to discussing plan sponsor compliance, Chris will discuss how plan sponsors can leverage the new laws and regulatory guidance to reduce the overall costs of sponsoring a group health plan. Specifically, this webinar will outline how a plan sponsor should use the new laws and regulatory guidance to:

  • Create a checklist of provisions that should be added to your Administrative Services Agreement (ASA);
  • Ensure that your broker and consultant relationships provide appropriate value;
  • And prepare for — and protect against — future litigation regarding the cost of healthcare
