The panel discussion will explore the recent spate of regulatory action taken by HHS, Treasury and Labor as they relate to health plan compliance (including the price transparency rule and what plans must do to comply) and the health plan provisions and relief enacted by the federal government and other relief issued by the IRS and DOL to address the COVID-19 pandemic.
