I recently spoke at the ECFC meeting last week - with one of the major topics being SBCs. It is important to keep in mind that seperate SBCs will be needed for the following arrangements:1. Stand-alone HRAs. 2. Integrated HRAs where the HRA is seperately administered (i.e., not administered by the insurer). 3. Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) where the EAP is providing assessment or treatment. In these situations, significant revisions will be needed to the SBC template, so that the SBC works for these arrangements and is not misleading. However, you still need to retain the outline of the SBC in order to have good faith compliance with the rules. As always, this will be a delicate balancing act.
While we are pleased to have you contact us by telephone, surface mail, electronic mail, or by facsimile transmission, contacting Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP or any of its attorneys does not create an attorney-client relationship. The formation of an attorney-client relationship requires consideration of multiple factors, including possible conflicts of interest. An attorney-client relationship is formed only when both you and the Firm have agreed to proceed with a defined engagement.
DO NOT CONVEY TO US ANY INFORMATION YOU REGARD AS CONFIDENTIAL UNTIL A FORMAL CLIENT-ATTORNEY RELATIONSHIP HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED.
If you do convey information, you recognize that we may review and disclose the information, and you agree that even if you regard the information as highly confidential and even if it is transmitted in a good faith effort to retain us, such a review does not preclude us from representing another client directly adverse to you, even in a matter where that information could be used against you.
