Be a Part of the Charles D. Spencer & Associates COBRA Survey
Excerpt: "The survey is the only national survey of COBRA and HIPAA done by an independent publishing firm, and its results are used regularly by both employee benefits associations and government agencies. The information will be used to report on the current status of continuation of coverage and HIPAA administration." (Charles D. Spencer & Associates, Inc.)

How Recent ERISA Judicial Decisions Impact Individuals Covered by Employer-Sponsored Health Plans
Excerpt: "The single most contentious issue in this debate concerns whether state damages remedies should be available for persons who suffer injuries as a result of the treatment decisions made by managed care companies. Under current law, the answer to this question turns on whether a court views a plaintiff's case as one that involves a 'claim for benefits' or as one that challenges the quality of care." (Sara Rosenbaum, J.D. and Joel Teitelbaum, J.D., LL.M.)
