COBRA

The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) is a Federal law that was enacted in April 1986. The law requires that employer groups of 20 or more provide for temporary health, dental and/or vision coverage for employees and/or their eligible dependents after a qualifying event has occurred. A qualifying event includes termination of employment, reduction in work hours, divorce or legal separation, employee’s death, an employee’s entitlement to Medicare benefits, or a dependent’s loss of coverage due to ineligibility.

Add in the administrative tasks required to prepare, track, and mail notices, process elections, and collect payments, and administering COBRA can quickly drain important business resources.
