“With often-changing rules and regulations around compliance, COBRA programs can become extremely complex for employers,” said ConnectYourCare’s CEO, Steve Grieco. “Not understanding the proper procedures, regulatory parameters, and design options can have a negative impact on benefits professionals and organizations, often resulting in hefty fines. With these compounding issues in mind, we are excited to clarify the regulations and facilitate ways to help employers eliminate risk and administrative burdens.”

For HR and benefits professionals seeking to earn continuing education credit, the webinar is recognized by SHRM for Professional Development Credit (PDC), for SHRM-CPSM or SHRM-SCPSM.

For brokers and consultants seeking to attend on behalf of clients, ConnectYourCare also recently launched a survey to capture the broker perspective on employee benefits, including COBRA administration. If you are a benefits broker, visit to participate.
