SEPTEMBER 21 WEBINAR: Summaries of Benefits & Coverage Under Health Care Reform: Your Guide to the New Requirements

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Sep 12, 2011) - In advance of the March 23, 2012, deadline when health care reform requires group health plans to begin providing four-page summaries of benefits and coverage (SBC) to participants and beneficiaries, Practical Law Company (PLC), a provider of online practical know-how for law firms and law departments, and Venable LLP, an American Lawyer Global 100 law firm, will present a FREE webinar, "Summaries of Benefits & Coverage Under Health Care Reform: Your Guide to the New Requirements." The webinar, which takes place September 21, 2011, at 1:00PM ET/10:00AM PT, will address the extensive new guidelines, including the proposed regulations, coverage examples and uniform glossary of terms.

During the one-hour presentation, Venable Of Counsel, Chris Condeluci, will discuss who must prepare and provide SBCs, when SBCs will be furnished, what appearance and language requirements apply and penalties for failing to provide SBCs. Kyle Murray, an Employee Benefits attorney editor at PLC, will moderate.

"We are very fortunate to have Chris, one of the few senior Congressional staffers who actively participated in the health reform debate before joining the private sector, lead this Webinar," explained Heidi Winzeler, PLC's Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation Head of Service. "Chris' extensive health care reform experience, coupled with PLC's up-to-date resources, will further equip law firm and in-house attorney participants with the practical know-how they need to counsel their clients on compliance."
