Role Limitations – Given the serious nature of the research and guidance we provide, the Compliance Administrator must operate within specific and strict limitations. The Compliance Administrator may not:

Complete or amend any federal filings (tax filings, M-1s, state MEWA documents, 5500s, etc.)

Draft governmental correspondence of any kind on a client’s behalf or represent the client before a governmental body (including even participating on calls with governmental representatives on a client’s behalf)
The Compliance Administrator must be sure to provide services within the boundaries of a consultant and not the practice of law – this means that the Compliance Administrator cannot offer legal/tax advice or opinions. The Compliance Administrator must be clear that he/she is not acting as the client’s lawyer or tax accountant and suggest the client consult with legal counsel (or CPA/tax advisor) upon reaching the limits of his/her ability to consult.
The Compliance Associate is responsible for assisting clients with integrating compliance requirements within the group health plan’s operations. However, the Compliance Administrator should not engage in account services responsibilities – the Account Services team operates as the quarterback for the relationship and is responsible for organizing calls, attending calls with compliance, and providing recaps (meeting minutes) and follow-ups. The account services team is also responsible for all related documentation (such as Benefit Point) and vendor relations (such as procuring vendor proposals and vendor setup). Additionally, Compliance team members shall not participate in client (or prospect) compliance calls without the presence of someone from the HUB account services or producer team also on the call.
