    Day 1 - November 5, 2020

    • Tri-Agency Commentary On Health And Welfare Updates | 1:00-2:30 PM ET |
      Sure, you’ve read all the latest Agency guidance, but now’s your chance to hear about it straight from the source. This panel of Agency representatives will discuss the latest guidance for health and welfare plans, including guidance on 213(d) medical expenses, transparency reporting, drug manufacturer copayment assistance, COVID testing, and pandemic-related deadline relief. And we’ll leave some time for questions!

      Vanessa A. Scott, Program Co-Chair, Eversheds Sutherland (US) LLP, Washington, DC (Moderator)

    • Ethical Considerations | 2:40-4:10 PM ET|
      Even when the rules don’t change, sometimes other circumstances change in a way that gives us reason to think about the rules in a new or different way. Such is the case in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our ethical duties remain the same, but just about everything else seems to have been upended. This session will review key ethical considerations for health and welfare benefit plan lawyers in light of the challenges brought about by the pandemic, such as remote work and multijurisdictional practice. This session will also address ethical issues related to fiduciary activities in connection with benefit programs, as well as other recent ethics cases and opinions. Join us for a lively and interactive discussion with illustrations based on real-world scenarios related to ERISA practice.
