EEOC Settles GINA Lawsuit
Compliance with the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 (GINA) has also recently been in the spotlight. The EEOC filed a suit against Fabricut (EEOC v. Fabricut Inc., No. 13-CV-0248-CVE-PJC, N.D. Okla. 2013), specifically challenging a violation of the ADA for refusing to hire an individual with a deemed medical condition, as well as violation of GINA for inquiring about her family medical history in a post-offer medical exam (see EEOC Press Release).
DOL Updates Model Medicaid/CHIP Notice
The Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA) enacted in 2009 provides for two additional HIPAA special enrollment events. These special enrollment events relate specifically to Medicaid. One special enrollment event arises if an individual loses eligibility for Medicaid. The other arises when an individual becomes eligible for premium assistance through Medicaid. “Premium assistance” means that a State’s Medicaid or Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) will pay all or a portion of the employer-provided coverage. Employers sponsoring health plans are obligated to annually provide a premium assistance notice to their workforce. This notification can be accomplished by using a model notice provided by the Department of Labor (DOL).
