The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires employers and plan sponsors to comply with a number of new coverage mandates and reporting and disclosure obligations. This panel will discuss how employees and the government may pursue claims under the ACA through ERISA (including the right to seek external review of claims that have been denied on appeal), whistleblower complaints under OSHA, and claims arising under other state and federal laws. They will discuss steps employers can take to avoid claims and how courts have been dealing with such claims since the passage of the ACA. Our expert panel will also address how compliance with the ACA’s coverage mandates have indirectly led to some unexpected results — like claims regarding the sufficiency of provider networks.
