Kimberly J. Boggs focuses her work on tax and ERISA matters related to employee benefit plans and arrangements. Her current primary focus is on welfare benefits plans, and she regularly conducts comprehensive reviews of welfare benefit plans for compliance with operational and form requirements of the Internal Revenue Code, Affordable Care Act (ACA), ERISA, COBRA, and HIPAA.
Kimberly drafts and amends welfare benefit plans to conform to changes in the law; assists clients with complex changes in status election change and COBRA coverage issues; and drafts and reviews open enrollment materials and summary plan descriptions. She advises plan sponsors of employer-sponsored group health plans on all aspects of compliance with the ACA, including the individual and employer-shared responsibility penalties, summaries of benefits and coverage, and employer reporting requirements.
In addition to her experience advising clients on various technical issues related to the ACA, she also advises on domestic partner, same-sex spouse, and cafeteria plan issues. Prior to joining Morgan Lewis, Kimberly was a manager in the performance and reward practice of a large professional services firm. She also briefly practiced law as an employee benefits and employment law associate, advising clients on all aspects of human resources administration, including counseling clients on COBRA administration, state-specific leave of absence administration, and employee handbook/policy drafting.
