“While ‘not a lot has changed from last year, from a compliance standpoint, when it comes to open enrollment, the new Summary of Benefits and Coverage (SBC) template and uniform glossary need to be implemented during this year’s open enrollment for calendar year plans,’ according to Mike Sinkeldam, a principal for Mercer’s Health and Benefits practice. At a recent Mercer webinar, Sinkeldam reminded plan sponsors that 2018 will be the first plan year that we have to use the new template. [Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory]
