Compliance

The need to comply with government regulations with regards to employee benefits in Georgia is a reality. Failure to comply can cost your company a lot of money. Georgia Health Insurance will ensure that you have the tools you need to stay compliant with ERISA and ACA requirements.

ERISA WRAP SPD Plan Document

If you offer group health insurance or other benefits then you must provide a WRAP, “Summary Plan Description” Plan Document (Wrap Doc). This document must disclose certain things about your plan. It is the responsibility of the business to provide this document, not the insurance company (the insurance company provides the Summary of Benefits Coverage or SBC).

If you do not create and supply this document to your employees within 120 days of the plan effective date, you can face fines of $110 a day per employee. Not having the Wrap Doc can also trigger an audit by the Department of Labor.

Now for the good news…

Georgia Health Insurance will create your SPD WRAP DOC for you!

Section 125 Premium Only Plan

Did you know that your employee’s contributions can be taken out of their paychecks pre-tax? This saves employees millions of dollars every year! The Premium Only Plan (POP plan) is a simple document that an employer is required to create and maintain on file in order to pre-tax employee insurance premiums. Failure to have this document on file while taking pre-tax premiums is a violation of tax law.

Georgia Health Insurance will create your POP plan for you!

COBRA Administration

If you have over 20 full time equivalent employees, you need COBRA administration. There are multiple options for making sure you comply with COBRA regulations. We will help you evaluate the options and choose the best way to manage your COBRA.

Other Compliance Requirements

Other compliance requirements for large groups and self-funded groups include; Form 5500 filing (100+ employees), form 1095/1094, PCORI fees, and more. It is important you work with an agency that will make sure that you have the knowledge and tools you need to remain complaint. Our goal at Georgia Health Insurance is to always be one step ahead in making sure our groups remain compliant.

Be Careful!

There are many “Payroll” companies that also try to handle employee benefits. The problem with these companies is that they usually do not fully understand Group Health Insurance and Employee Benefits. They operate with a limited selection of plans and are slow to adapt to changes in the marketplace. Usually the account manager you will work with has little to no experience in employee benefits.
