Key Health Care News

Sibson’s First Quarter 2018 Trends report highlights key areas employers need to know.

You’ll learn about:

  • An announcement by the IRS giving an automatic 30-day extension for providing 2017 Forms 1095-B or 1095-C to individuals,
  • Compliance requirements for employers that sponsor health and welfare (and retirement) plans covered in the 2018 Reporting & Disclosure Calendar for Benefit Plans, and
  • The latest executive actions on health care.

You will also learn about strategies employers are using to manage their health plans, including:

  • Continuing to dispense generic anti-hypertensive drugs in light of the increase in the number of patients who may be candidates for hypertension drug therapy, and
  • Using care-coordination/integration programs to bridge communications between behavioral health and medical providers with the increase in out-of-network utilization for mental health/substance use disorders.

 

Previous issues from 2014 through Fourth Quarter 2017 are available on the Trends Archive page.
