Steve Mindy

Washington, DC Office

Steven Mindy focuses his practice on employee benefit plan counseling and ERISA litigation related to health and welfare benefits. He works extensively on issues related to group health plans, wellness programs, health savings accounts (HSAs), flexible spending accounts (FSAs) and transportation fringe benefits, including the laws applicable to plans and their service providers when using new technology like mobile devices, apps and wearables.

With his extensive knowledge of the privacy and security laws that impact benefit plans, including HIPAA's privacy and security requirements, Steven frequently helps covered entities and business associates comply with breach and security incident notification requirements under HIPAA and other privacy laws.

Steven also has deep experience with ERISA's plan-asset rules, trust requirements and prohibited transaction exemptions. He advises on issues related to association health plans (AHPs) and multiple employer welfare arrangements (MEWAs), voluntary employees' beneficiary associations (VEBAs), and union multiemployer plans. He also has a niche practice counseling financial institutions, insurance companies and nonbank trustees on HSA matters. Steven uses his prior experience as a federal law enforcement officer to assist clients with criminal and civil investigations and audits by the federal and state agencies that regulate benefit plans and data privacy and security.
