Brian Bartels, partner and member of the firm’s national Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation Group, recently participated in a panel discussion during the United Benefits Advisors® (UBA) Fall Conference in Chicago, IL.

The session, titled “The Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) Revolution Unveiled,” examined ways that A.I. is shaping the employee benefits industry. The panelists addressed three main topics:

  1. How do you see A.I. transforming/adding value to your business?
  2. How are you currently leveraging A.I. in your business? Any specific tools?
  3. What near-range and long-term strategies will be required?

Brian works with clients on employee benefit plan issues and advises on group health plans, wellness programs, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), HIPAA, ERISA, the No Surprises Act, mental health parity requirements, cafeteria plans, health savings accounts, and other health and welfare plans. He regularly drafts and negotiates service agreements and business associate agreements for employee benefit plans. Brian also prepares plan-related documents and employee communications and counsels clients on benefit plan design and administration issues. Additionally, he advises clients on employee benefit issues in the context of mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures.
