The Employee Benefits Security Administration says it wants to see how well employers are following federal group health plan laws.

EBSA, an arm of the U.S. Department of Labor, is getting ready to conduct a new Health Disclosure and Claims Issues Project survey.

EBSA conducted a similar survey of 200 plans in 1999, to see how well the plans were complying with “Part 7″ of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.

The Part 7 laws include provisions of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, the Mental Health Parity Act of 1996, the Newborns’ and Mothers’ Health Protection Act of 1996 and the Women’s Health and Cancer Rights Act of 1998.
