COBRA (Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act) rules typically require that group health benefit plans involving 20 or more employees in the past year that are sponsored by employers offer temporary continuation coverage in specific circumstances where coverage might end.
COBRA permits employees and their families to continue healthcare coverage while they adjust to changes due to divorce, job loss, reduction in hours and other situations that can cause them to lose their health benefits. Proper online COBRA compliance training allows you to understand who qualifies for COBRA, how to offer extended coverage, how to stay compliant with current rules and how to provide notice to employees. COBRA also requires quite a bit of paperwork, and training ensures you get the paperwork right every time.
