With often changing rules and regulations around compliance, COBRA (Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act) implementation can become extremely complex for employers. Even though the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) has made healthcare coverage easier for individuals to obtain, employer-sponsored group health plans must continue to offer COBRA coverage.
Not understanding the proper procedures, regulatory parameters, and design options can really hurt your organization.
No matter the circumstances that lead to an employees’ departure from an organization, there are procedures and best practices that must be followed to ensure compliance with both internal corporate policies and external federal regulations.
In this session, you will:
- Become more familiar with COBRA administration and COBRA compliance
- Get tips to help you avoid common mistakes and pitfalls that could result in fines and penalties
- Learn about the historic case law behind COBRA as a mechanism to better advise employers on legal ramifications of decisions
- Gain knowledge about how to select and implement a COBRA program
