[Webinar] COBRA 101: An Introduction to the Law and Practice of COBRA Administration

Description:

The Consolidated Omnibus Reconciliation Act (“COBRA”) gives workers and their families who lose their health benefits the right to choose to continue group health benefits provided by their group health plan for limited periods of time under certain circumstances such as voluntary or involuntary job loss, reduction in the hours worked, transition between jobs, death, divorce, and other life events.

COBRA outlines how employees and family members may elect such “continuation coverage.” It also requires employers and plans to provide employees with certain notices and other required disclosures relative to the availability, cost, and length of coverage.

In this foundational program, participants will explore these and other legal and regulatory entitlements to the continuation of health coverage for employees who lose their jobs or who experience a reduction of working hours, disqualifying their health coverage.

Additionally, we’ll evaluate the effect of the COBRA requirements and the associated coverage entitlements extended to the children and spouse of an affected employee.

Practitioners looking for an actionable and practical survey of the law and regulation of COBRA, either as an introductory module or for purposes of refreshing their current knowledge and skills, will find this program both effective and informative.
