Date:7/15/2013

Indianapolis, Indiana (PRWEB) July 15, 2013

United Benefit Advisors (UBA), one of the nation's leading independent employee benefits advisory organizations, and a leading provider of health care reform compliance content, has announced the results of its annual ‘Ubbie Awards’ with Linda Rowings, Chief Compliance Officer, receiving the newly-created ‘Staff Member of the Year’ award for 2012. UBA experienced tremendous demand for its Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) compliance documents in 2012 and 2013, a result of Mrs. Rowings’ outstanding contribution to the legal space surrounding health care reform law.

Under Rowings’ direction, UBA offers unparalleled PPACA compliance tools to employers nationwide. The UBA website offers an online resource center with white papers, regulation and guidance updates, and more. In addition, through its more than 140 Partner Firms, UBA serves 36,000 employers with additional compliance resources including:

  • HRinsider HR news web portal
  • HR elements trends newsletter
  • Compliance Alert and Newsletter subscription
  • Webinars with leading benefits law experts
  • Compliance dashboard to track progress on compliance tasks
  • Customized pay or play analysis reports

As Chief Compliance Officer, Rowings is responsible for providing assistance to Partner Firms on a variety of compliance issues that affect fully insured and self-funded plans, including, but not limited to, PPACA. Rowings is available for interview and UBA resources are available to the media.

The Ubbie Awards are in recognition of innovation, quality of work, professionalism and contributions to programs that enhance business practices for the greater good of the entire organization. Award recipients must contribute to the development of resources and education necessary to help employers effectively manage their employee benefits and assist in the recruitment and retention of the best people.

Thomas Mangan, CEO of UBA says, “With health care reform on the minds of employers nationwide, top-notch ERISA attorneys like Linda are in high demand. Tens of thousands of people follow our blog (http://bit.ly/18aoi1h) and subscribe to our PPACA Advisor RSS feeds (http://bit.ly/11iepGW). We’ve seen a 400 percent increase in web traffic and resource downloads on our website (http://www.UBABenefits.com). Linda and her team have simply been invaluable to UBA clients and employers throughout the nation.”

Prior to joining UBA, Linda Rowings was Human Resource Counsel for a local life insurance company, providing legal support on a variety of HR issues, including employment, employee benefits, compensation and payroll. Rowings also has been Senior Counsel in the employee benefits group for a local law firm, focusing on health and welfare benefit issues, and General Counsel for a local third party administrator, working primarily on compliance and design issues for self-funded health and Section 125 plans.

Rowings received her JD from Indiana University (Bloomington) and her BA from the University of Virginia; she holds the Fellow, Life Management Institute designation.

The Ubbie Award announcements came at UBA’s 2013 Spring Conference held in Rosemont, Ill., which saw a record attendance of nearly 500 employee benefit and financial advisors and Strategic Partners. UBA’s annual Spring Meeting is an opportunity for UBA thought leaders to discuss the rapidly changing benefits industry and what is required of successful advisor firms looking to stay ahead of emerging trends. Linda Rowings led well-attended discussions on PPACA.
