Eric concentrates his practice in the areas of health and welfare plans, including major medical, dental, vision, life insurance, disability, employee assistance, fringe and other employer-provided benefits.

He has extensive experience helping employers comply with the various Federal and state laws applicable to health and welfare plans, such as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), ERISA, the Internal Revenue Code, the Public Health Service Act, HIPAA, COBRA, FMLA and Medicare.  As part of his practice, he assists clients with drafting plan and trust documents, amendments, SPDs and other required disclosures for such plans; handling employer and plan audits by the IRS, DOL, EEOC and other governmental agencies; analyzing employee-benefit issues relating to all aspects of plan design and funding, such as the use of Voluntary Employees’ Beneficiary Associations (VEBAs) and plan restructuring that results from mergers, acquisitions, and other corporate transactions; preparing government agency filings, such as private letter ruling requests, ACA reporting, and state disability benefit plan applications; analyzing plan administrative, fiduciary and tax issues, including benefit claims and appeals, coverage mandates, nondiscrimination requirements, and income and payroll tax reporting; and reviewing and negotiating service provider agreements.

Eric has been at the forefront of the ongoing efforts by the new administration and Congress to repeal and replace the ACA and the potential impact on employers. He was most recently quoted in the HR Dive article: Employers move on as healthcare reform fails — for now.

Eric has given presentations on numerous aspects of ACA compliance and written articles on the ACA repeal and replacement process for legal publications including the “expert analysis” section of Law360.com, health care section of Federal Employment Law Insider and the Daily Journal. He has been quoted in Business and Legal Resources (BLR®) articles covering ACA repeal legislation and provided insider commentary for Law360’s ACA Repeal Predictions expert roundup. He also participates in a law commentary podcast as a guest to discuss the legal, economic and political implications of various ACA repeal and replacement proposals.
