Benefits Recordkeeping and Disclosures
National Summary
What do employers need to consider regarding benefits recordkeeping and disclosures? The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) provides extensive reporting and disclosure and other administrative requirements for employee benefit plans. The law and regulations also provide for numerous exemptions from the various requirements.
Additional disclosure requirements apply to health plans. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) added many additional reporting, disclosure, and notice requirements for health plans and insurers, including additional internal and external appeal requirements for health insurers and group health plans.
There are other laws that concern employers. They must also consider the Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage provisions that impose reporting and disclosure requirements on health plans that cover Medicare-eligible individuals. Additionally, the Pension Protection Act of 2006 (PPA) added new reporting and notice requirements.
