)-- The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: Proposed DOL Disability Claim Regulations: Time to Assess The Impact On Company Policies And Practices Live Webcast. This two-hour event is scheduled on September 1, 2016 at 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM ET.
In November 2015, the Department of Labor (DOL) released its proposed regulations that will upgrade existing procedures in determining disability benefit claims under ERISA plans. The proposed new rules will revise and strengthen the current rules for adjudication of disability benefit claims with claims and appeals procedures for non-grandfathered group health plans under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
In this Live Webcast, a seasoned panel of thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the fundamentals as well as recent developments in DOL’s Disability Claims Regulations.
Key topics include:
· New conflict of interest requirements
· New adverse benefit determinations obligations
· New appeals practices and procedures
· Expanded deemed exhausted rules
· New rescission rules for disability claims
