Podcast 58: What Would the SECURE Act Mean for You?

In this podcast, Beth Allen and Chase Cannon discuss the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act. Beth highlights the last major retirement legislation that's passed and briefly discusses what has taken place to bring the SECURE Act to this point. That discussion leads into a conversation about what all the SECURE Act entails, including what the act would mean for retirement plan participants, plan sponsors, and industry organizations. They end with a discussion of where the bill is now and what could happen next.

Every other week, NFP's legal experts make the subject of compliance personal for a wide audience. By breaking down the daunting details of emerging policies and bridging the gap between legislation and what it means for the listener, Chase Cannon and Suzanne Spradley make compliance issues relatable and relevant.

It’s MLR Rebate Time Again!

PPACA requires insurers to submit an annual report to HHS accounting for plan costs. If the insurer does not meet the medical loss ratio standards, they must provide rebates to policyholders. Rebates must be distributed to employer plan sponsors between August 1, 2019, and September 30, 2019. Employers should keep in mind that, if they receive a rebate, there are strict guidelines as to how the rebate may be used or distributed.

For more information, please contact your advisor for a copy of "Medical Loss Ratio Rebates: A Guide for Employers" or "Medical Loss Ratio: PPACA's Rules on Rebates."
