Default ERISA - Health Actuary

Ok, i know when i was studying...somewhere around 8 years ago. I read a bunch on ERISA requirements for Health plans. I can't remember what exam/book that was in/from and i was hoping someone might just KNOW or have a further thread i could pull on to figure that out.

Specific need is just wanting to remember what these requirements/plans are and look like. How they act etc.

Any helpful ERISA vs Non-ERISA type summaries (my googling has failed me) would also be helpful.

It's a bit hazy, but I think The Handbook of Employee Benefits, on the Group & Health Core syllabus, had a lot of material related to ERISA requirements.

DOL Reg. Section 2510.3-1(j) may help. It lists the requirements for a plan to NOT be considered a group health plan (e.g. Participation the program is completely voluntary).

I agree. I would confirm, but my text has been isolated in my office for nearly three months "in these uncertain times".
