Health & Welfare Plan Counseling

Jones Day has significant experience addressing the health and welfare benefits issues that have become increasingly complex in recent years. We help clients design and draft complicated and interrelated programs including health benefit plans, pharmacy benefit plans, wellness programs, and disease management programs. In addition, we help our clients with disability, life insurance, and other ERISA-regulated welfare benefit arrangements.

The breadth of our practice and depth of our bench gives us experience with innovative approaches currently being implemented to control the costs of welfare benefit programs as well as to meet the various legal requirements, including, in particular, federal health care reform (the Affordable Care Act). Because we have a number of lawyers primarily focused on the Affordable Care Act, we are ideally positioned to help U.S. companies deal with the issues raised by the Act and the changes it is causing in the health care sector, including the "play or pay" rules and myriad new employer reporting requirements.
