TeleconferencesThe monthly series of ECFC teleconferences provide a unique and valuable opportunity for association members to receive in-depth briefings on important and timely topics by experts from ECFC’s Technical Advisory Committee and key decision-makers in government. Teleconference registrants have the extra advantage of being able to listen to the audio recording of the teleconference after they have occurred.
Register now and mark your calendar to gather around your conference table for 60 minutes!
The hour long teleconference starts each second Wednesday of the month at 1:00pm ET (12pm CT, 11am MT, 10am PT) except for the months of March and August.
ECFC’s top experts work through difficult and delicate topics in one-hour sessions. Topics are appropriate to the month and many will elaborate and further discuss ECFC FLEX Reporter articles and answer questions. The sessions are designed to pass on up-to-the minute information as well as technical expertise.
- Use It or Lose It update (when guidance issues)
- Wellness program compliance issues: integration with HSAs, onsite medical clinics, and telephonic clinics
- COBRA compliance in a flex environment
- HIPAA compliance issues and the use of email or text to communicate FSA benefits
- HIPAA HITECH regulations update
- Electronic payment card‒compliance issues
- Public Exchange: implications for plan sponsors
- Pay/Play revisited
- Private exchanges: compliance issues
- Impact of DOL guidance (fiduciary and fee disclosure regulations) on HSA and flex administration
Please note the ECFC and our speakers attempt to cover the targeted materials and presentation in the allotted 60 minutes, occasionally presentations may exceed the allotted time due to the breadth of the information being discussed or number of questions asked by the teleconference participants.
Dial In Instructions are sent on the Monday before the conference call to registrants via email only.
