HIPAA/COBRA/MEDICARE *Upcoming Seminars*


Kate Bardsley, Association Manager of MAIA’s sister association MassAHU, came to me this morning with some information for MAIA members. Actually, she must have been in early, because she tracked me down in the hallway while I still had my coat on. But that’s the way Kate is…she gets things done, no matter the time or place!

What was so urgent…MassAHU is sponsoring two Health Insurance related seminars that may be of interest to MAIA members as well. If your P&C Agency also provides Health Insurance products, you may want to attend the following sessions and earn some state approved CEU’s.

Seminar 1: HIPAA Portability and COBRA– Tuesday, January 19th 

Your clients depend on you, so make sure you have the answers to the recently amended new breach notification rules and to apply HIPAA requirements directly to business associates.

COBRA and HIPAA are federal laws that affect Employer-Sponsored Health, Vision and similar type employee benefits plans. The Department of Labor’s Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA) seminar presenter, Kristy M. Phillips, J.D., will take two hours on each topic – HIPAA and COBRA. View the ouline.
