With HighRoads Compliance, companies of any size can get assistance in navigating the complex regulations related to health care reform by leveraging technology to simplify and automate the creation and update of existing employer medical Summary Plan Descriptions (SPDs). The SPD is the main vehicle for communicating plan rights to participants.

As cost-conscious businesses get ready to delve into compliance regulations in the wake of the health care bill's passage, HighRoads offers midmarket companies a solution to ensure the necessary compliance. HighRoads, a provider of employer health care compliance and benefits management, announced that its full-service technology solution HR Compliance has been optimized to better serve SMB clients.

The company said HR Compliance streamlines the process for businesses to communicate health care reform-related plan changes to their employees.
