Complying with COBRA
||Online Training Course
The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) was signed into law in 1986, making extended health insurance coverage available, for a limited period of time, to qualified beneficiaries who experience certain life events. Under the Act, employees and their families can purchase health care coverage at the employer’s group rate when an employee experiences an event that results in the loss of employer-provided coverage.
This online course discusses who qualifies for COBRA, how COBRA works, and what happens to employers who do not comply with COBRA standards. The course includes an explanation of how the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), which took effect on Feb. 17, 2009, has amended certain provisions of COBRA.
