COVID-19 Regulatory Compliance Update
In accordance with ERISA Section 518, the DOL and the IRS have jointly issued guidance (“Joint Guidance”) that directs group health plans and group health insurers to disregard the period between March 1, 2020, and 60 days after the announced end of the COVID-19 National Emergency (the “Relief Period”) when calculating the certain plan related time periods described below. Consequently, the application of the Joint Guidance means that (i) any of the following time periods that began before March 1 but did not expire prior to March 1 are tolled until the end of the Relief Period, and (ii) the start date of any of the following time periods that would otherwise begin on or after March 1 is postponed until the end of the Relief Period.
