Legislative Oversight and Compliance for the Public Sector
In today’s rapidly changing legislative landscape understanding the impact on your benefit plans translates into plan savings and peace of mind. Our group is trained to understand current legislation and closely monitor new legislation in order to keep you in compliance with state and federal laws.
We were one of the first agencies in the State to offer seminars and written guidance on Michigan Public Acts (P.A.) 54 and P.A. 152 (aka Senate Bill 7) which were passed in 2011.
We pay particular attention on how NEW laws impact collective bargaining agreements and when grandfathering provisions and exemptions afforded to self-insured groups can provide relief. For example, our research and understanding of new laws launched our Retiree Drug Subsidy (RDS) and Early Retiree Reinsurance Program (ERRP) Subsidy recovery business. These services enable our clients to be first in line to receive much needed financial assistance. As a result of our market prowess, we have been able to collect millions of dollars on behalf of our clients.
We regularly conduct seminars and webinars to communicate significant regulatory and compliance changes. Our HR resource program allows our clients the ability to access an extensive library of content and trainings that goes well beyond benefits. A vast array of articles exists on a number of regulatory topics. We have access to subject matter experts and attorneys in the areas listed above and will do research on your behalf to tackle case- specific issues.
