The End of the Covid-19 National Emergency: What Plan Sponsors Need to Know

Boutwell Fay LLP

May 25, 2023
Recorded Online
Webinar

On April 10, 2023, President Biden signed legislation terminating the COVID-19 National Emergency, which takes effect on June 9, 2023 (60 days after the effective date of the legislation). To assist employers in understanding the impact on employee benefit plans, the Departments of Labor (“DOL”), Health and Human Services (“HHS”), and Treasury (collectively the “Departments”) published FAQs Part 58 on the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (“FFCRA”), the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”), and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”). 

The new guidance effectively terminates several of the employee benefit plan mandates that were implemented when the National Emergency was initially declared on March 13, 2020, which was retroactively effective March 1, 2020. Those mandates required that certain time periods and dates for HIPAA special enrollment, COBRA continuation coverage, and internal claims and appeals and external review be disregarded (“Disregarded Periods”) when determining the due dates for certain elections and other actions by employee benefit plans subject to ERISA and the Internal Revenue Code, and participants and beneficiaries of these plans during the COVID-19 National Emergency.

Please join us for a one-hour discussion of the Department’s recent guidance and best practices for administering employee benefit plans in light of the end of the National Emergency.

Topics:

  • Disregarded Deadlines
  • COVID Tests and Vaccines
  • COVID-19 Diagnostic Testing
  • COBRA Deadlines
  • Special Enrollment
  • Loss of Medicaid/CHIP Coverage
  • Telehealth
  • SBC and SPD Updates
  • Impact on HDHPs
