  • Due diligence issues
  • Purchase agreement considerations and post-closing transactions
  • Substantive issues and new developments that impact health and welfare plan, including the Affordable Care Act, Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act compliance, transparency in coverage requirements under the CAA, cafeteria plans, COBRA, keeping tax-favored status, and more.
Virtual Instructor-Led Training

These courses have limited spots available to simulate a classroom environment and make it easier for those attending to have meaningful engagement with the curriculum.
