Understanding the Top 5 Group Employee Benefit Trends for 2015.

This webinar will discuss the top five group benefit trends for 2015, most of which are inter-related and not mutually exclusive. The top 5 group benefit trends in 2015 are defined contribution health plans, private exchanges, consumer-driven health plans, voluntary benefits and self-funding. As employers continue to strategize how to deal with health care reform facts, one approach gaining in popularity is defined contribution health plans, which often use private exchanges, in which employees often choose consumer-driven health plans, which create greater needs for voluntary benefits. Self-funding of health plans can take place in a defined contribution environment or can be an alternative to private exchange, which are often fully insured. In many ways these current trends are not new and have been around for many years, often under other names. For example, defined contribution health plans are similar in concept to flexible benefit plans, also known as cafeteria plans. Similarly, single-carrier private exchanges have been around for many years, they just did not have a name.

HIPAA Training: Enforcing Protection for PHI & ePHI - All that you need to know.

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) required the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to develop standards for protecting the privacy of protected health information (PHI) and the security of electronic personal health records (ePHI). The original regulations have been updated to reflect the requirements of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act. The Health Information Technology Act did many things, most notably imposing new notification requirements following a breach of unsecured personal health record. Patients and plan participants whose data has been breached must be notified, Department of Health and Human Services must be notified and in certain instances large media outlets must be notified. The regulations under the HITECH Act require all covered entities to amend their business associate agreements, privacy notices and policies and procedures. The HITECH Act also extended many HIPAA requirements to business associates.
The HITECH Act also increased penalties for HIPAA violations. HHS has recently released guidance on protecting ePHI on mobile devices.
