An excerpt from "Conduct Self-Audits to Ensure Compliance"
The DOL has already begun auditing employers' group health plans and is expected to step up its auditing efforts this year.

Moreover, various penalties could be imposed by the DOL and/or the IRS for failure to implement certain Affordable Care Act-related coverage mandates.
