Social Security and Medicare: Communication Challenges as Employees Approach Retirement Age - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: This webinar will help you navigate the Medicare Secondary Payer rules. You could face stiff penalties if you improperly try to shift a current plan participant onto Medicare to reduce costs.


As employees prepare for retirement in growing numbers, they have questions about Social Security eligibility, and how and when to apply for Medicare benefits. For those that want to continue to work past 65, they also have questions about how continuing to work will impact their benefits. 

It's also critical to navigate the Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) rules, especially as they apply to employees who keep working after turning 65. You could face stiff penalties if you improperly try to shift a current plan participant onto Medicare to reduce costs.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Understand how Medicare interacts with employer coverage and COBRA
  • Communicate to employees the types of Medicare coverage and the consequences of late enrollment
  • Steer clear of the types of Medicare enrollment incentives that might violate MSP

Steve Mindy not only understands the ins and outs of employee benefit plans, he knows the delicate balance they strike in the overall health of an

organization. Clients turn to him for help navigating issues from group health plans, health savings accounts (HSAs), flexible spending accounts (FSAs), to fringe benefits and legal matters from new technology like mobile devices, apps and wearables.

With his extensive knowledge of the privacy and security laws that impact benefit plans, including HIPAA's privacy and security requirements, Steve frequently helps covered entities and business associates comply with breach and security incident notification requirements under HIPAA and other privacy laws.

Steve combines experience with the latest industry information to assist clients with ERISA's plan-asset rules, trust requirements and prohibitedtransaction exemptions. Knowing that not all plans are "one size fits all," he advises clients on association health plans (AHPs) and multiple employer welfare arrangements (MEWAs), voluntary employees' beneficiary associations (VEBAs) and union multiemployer plans. As HSAs continue to grow in popularity, he has built a niche practice counseling financial institutions, insurance companies and nonbank trustees on HSA matters.

Steve uses his prior experience as a federal law enforcement officer to assist clients with criminal and civil investigations and audits by the federal and state agencies that regulate benefit plans and data privacy and security.
