From time to time, self-funded employers are required to comply with new Federal legislation related to the administration of employer-sponsor benefits. In December of 2020, the Consolidated Appropriations Act (CAA) 2021 was signed into law, including many provisions that impact employer-sponsored health plans. For some, flashbacks to the changes brought on by the Affordable Care Act may come rushing through your mind like a riptide — only this time, you’re navigating these changes in the era of a pandemic.
We want to share our thoughts as we navigate this new legislative landscape, as healthcare data analytics experts, not as policy or legal experts. Here we’ll share our compiled learnings and opportunities that serve as our compass as we discuss CAA 2021 with our partners, including brokers, consultants, employers, and digital health solutions.
