Burwell v. Hobby Lobby and Your Corporation

Burwell v. Hobby Lobby may affect your business. The Supreme Court of the United States, in a 5-4 decision, held, in part, that the Department of Health and Human Services' regulations imposing the contraceptive mandate, as applied to closely-held corporations, violates the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993. Burwell v. Hobby Lobby, No. 13-354 (June 30, 2014). In the midst of the seemingly endless amount of news coverage and legal analysis, it is important for business owners to understand how this ruling applies to their business and their employees. Specifically, it is important to understand the difference between a closely-held corporation and a publicly-held corporation. However, at this point, it is unclear how this holding might affect other corporate forms.

Does your Health Care Directive provide HIPAA Authorization?

Does your Advance Health Care Directive provide HIPAA Authorization? An Advance Health Care Directive is an imperative part of your estate plan. It authorizes an individual of your choice to make health care decisions for you if you are incapacitated or too ill to make your own decisions. The intent is also for that individual, as your health care agent, to be able to access your health care records or communicate on your behalf regarding your health care information.
