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. As is typical of a DOL group health plan audit, the DOL is seeking documentation that demonstrates an employer's compliance with the Affordable Care Act. An insufficient response to a DOL audit request could lead to additional inquiries and even lawsuits. Moreover, various penalties could be imposed by the DOL and/or the IRS for failure to implement certain Affordable Care Act-related coverage mandates.
