Salazar will present “Health Care Reform Checkup” at 9:30 a.m. March 4 in the University Center’s C.J. Davidson Conference Center. The lecture is open free to the public and is an update to Salazar’s 2013 Wells Fargo Lecture, “Understanding the Implications of Health Care Reform on Employers.”
As an employee benefits compliance professional, Salazar possesses extensive experience addressing employers’ responsibilities under federal, state and local laws. She interacts with regulatory agencies, such as the Department of Labor, Internal Revenue Service, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, Department of Health and Human Services and state insurance departments, to address the applicability of laws and regulations to group health plans.
Salazar and her staff are actively involved in identifying and implementing cost-effective employer solutions that comply with new health care reform mandates, including defined contribution plans and consumer-driven health care plans.
Salazar earned her Juris Doctorate from the Universidad de Los Andes in Colombia. She is a member of the American Bar Association and the California and Los Angeles County Bar Associations. Prior to joining Wells Fargo Insurance 16 years ago, she worked in Colombia as an in-house counsel for Multinspec Ltd. and Thomas Miller Inc. Americas.
