COBRA is a complicated and cumbersome law that requires organizations with 20 or more employees to offer the continuation of group health benefits (Medical, Dental, Vision and Medical Reimbursement Account) to employees (and covered dependents) upon experiencing a “qualifying event.”
Employers are required to provide initial COBRA notification to covered employees and dependents, a letter detailing an individual’s rights upon experiencing a “qualifying event,” an explanation of the conversion privilege and provide the administration of the COBRA benefit including the collection and remittance of the COBRA premiums.
Qualifying Events include:
- Termination of Employment
- Reduction of work hours
- Employee’s Death
- Employee’s divorce (or legal separation in some states)
- Medicare entitlement
- Change in “dependent” status
