Let’s face it, summer is over. Just as students are back to school and adjusting again to concentrate on their studies, employers should be actively turning to refocus attention to their upcoming compliance obligations for the health and welfare benefit plans they sponsor. With all of the new regulations and evolving regulatory activity, it is easy to forget some of the end of the year annual reporting and disclosures that apply to group health plans.
