Evolution of HIPAA & COBRA: Keep up with the Changes

HIPAA and COBRA have been evolving sometimes quietly and sometimes due to major changes. For example, compliance audits and expanded scope have made HIPAA a more prominent concern for a vastly larger number of companies than ever before. COBRA has been affected in significant ways by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and is an increasingly sticky issue in corporate transactions. This is in addition to the changes in best practices, shifts in expectations and popular trends. So please join us for this 60-minute webinar to ensure you are fully compliant with HIPAA and COBRA laws as they exist today.
