In an era where transparency in healthcare pricing and policyholder rights are increasingly under the spotlight, the prohibitions on gag clauses have introduced a new dimension to the employer's role in employee benefits compliance. Join Jennifer Stanley, Esq., former DAHU President and founder of StanleyKup Compliance, for a comprehensive 1-hour Continuing Education (CE) presentation designed to demystify the intricacies surrounding gag clauses within employee benefits plans.
In this session, attendees will gain valuable insights into the purpose of prohibiting gag clauses, which is pivotal for increasing transparency, granting Plan Sponsors the statutory authority to negotiate contracts without being obstructed by the “proprietary information” barrier, and ensuring unfettered access to their Plan’s crucial data.
Attendees will learn what gag clauses entail, how they affect the disclosure of provider-specific information, and what alternatives exist to attesting. Through this engaging presentation, brokers and consultants will be equipped with the knowledge to effectively confront and comply (or not comply) with gag clause prohibitions. They will leave with actionable strategies to implement for both upcoming plan renewals and retrospectively for renewals beginning January 1, 2021, and understand the consequences of attesting—or failing to attest—to the absence of gag clauses in their agreements.
