An increasing number of employers and other plan sponsors have implemented wellness programs to help control health care spending and improve the health of their workforces. While plan sponsors (and their advisors) had the benefit of final wellness regulations to help them design and administer their wellness programs to comply with the HIPAA nondiscrimination as amended by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) for 2014, plan sponsors must also make sure that such programs do not run afoul of the anti-discrimination laws enforced by the EEOC, such as the ADA, GINA, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act’s prohibitions on race, sex, and national origin discrimination, and the ADEA. Our distinguished panel will discuss:
  • What wellness programs are and common wellness program designs;
  • Final wellness regulations under the ACA and how they impact participatory wellness programs and health-contingent programs;
  • How the anti-discrimination laws affect wellness programs and how the EEOC has enforced such laws.
