Every year, the Department of Labor (DOL) requires administrators of certain Multiple Employer Welfare Arrangements (MEWAs) that offer medical benefits to electronically file the Form M-1. The DOL considers the Form M-1 filing a necessity in assisting both it and the state insurance departments with protecting consumers. An explanation of who is required to file along with useful tips and links to simplify the filing process are included in the attached “Compliance Overview.”
The deadline for filing the Form M-1 is March 1, 2019.
