ERISA Wrap SPD Video — DOL/ACA-required for all employer group health plans

Core Documents, the nation’s leading provider of Section 125 Cafeteria and HRA plan documents, announces the release of its recently updated ERISA Wrap SPD Video. See it here:

ERISA Wrap SPD Video Explains It All

The ERISA Wrap SPD Video explains the requirements by ERISA and the Affordable Care Act as concisely as possible:

  • Employers offering a group health plan have to distribute a Wrap SPD within 120 days of the Plan’s effective date.
  • Failure to provide the Wrap SPD within 30 days of request triggers a $110 a day fine per participant.
  • Not having a Wrap SPD can also trigger an audit by the Department of Labor.
  • The insurance company’s Master Contract, Certificate of Coverage, or Summary of Benefits is not a Wrap SPD.
  • These rules apply to all employer-sponsored group health plans, including a one-person plan.
