Employers who sponsor health and welfare plans must comply with a complex legal environment. Liability can be minimized or eliminated if an employer understands and complies with the rules imposed by ERISA, the Internal Revenue Code, and other federal and state laws. Mastering the basics of eligibility, plan documents, claims procedures and understanding the scope of federal legislation are the first steps in our process. It is our position that you seek out and retain qualified legal and tax counsel specific to your plan goals and objectives.
