Lisa has an extensive background in employee benefits and is able to offer clients a broad and practical perspective on challenging issues that often arise in the initial implementation and day-to-day administration of H&W benefits.
She advises all types of employers on how to navigate the multiple laws (e.g., ACA, HIPAA, COBRA, ERISA, the Internal Revenue Code, GINA and Medicare) that impact their H&W plans – including group health plans for active and retired employees, cafeteria plans, wellness programs, HRAs, HSAs, and health and dependent care FSAs.
