McNees’ Benefits Group will be issuing a “Did you know?” series throughout the year providing short compliance reminders.

Did you know that group health plans are required to submit a gag clause prohibition compliance attestation to the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Treasury prior to December 31, 2023?  The annual attestation provides that the group health plan has not, since December 27, 2020, entered into and will not enter into a contract with a health care provider, third-party administrator, or other service provider offering access to a network of providers that would directly or indirectly restrict the group health plan from disclosing the quality and cost of services and certain other information.

For more information regarding compliance for your benefit plans, contact any member of the McNees Labor and Employment Group.
