  • Discuss annual notices and disclosures that are provided outside of open enrollment during the plan year and any recent changes to templates

  • Highlight differences between notice requirements for fully-insured plans and self-funded plans
  • Discuss the DOL rules for electronic distribution of notices and the types of notices that can be distributed electronically
