Department of Labor Releases Final SBC Regulations

On Thursday, the Department of Labor released the Final Regulations describing a plan sponsor’s responsibilities for preparing and distributing the 4-Page Summary of Benefits and Coverage (SBC). The template for the 4-Page (double-sided) Summary has not changed significantly from the earlier proposed regulations and the Final Regulations require compliance for plan years on or after September 23, 2012.

MedBen is in the process of reviewing the Final Regulations and will provide for its clients a summary of the requirements, but in the meantime, additional information can be found on the Department of Labor’s Employee Benefits Security Administration website:
