Compliance Corner

Compliance Corner is a bi-weekly update with the latest news and resources on benefits compliance, federal health, healthcare reform and COVID-19. The content in Compliance Corner is produced by our parent company at NFP.

The situation and guidance surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) are rapidly evolving on a daily and sometimes hourly basis. While we address current federal and state guidance, we expect that there will be additional changes in the coming days and weeks. We will do our best to update you on these developments, but please understand that this publication only reflects the guidance we’ve received to date.

Employers should consult with their counsel and plan advisors to remain abreast of all compliance obligations.
