COBRA Compliance And Common Tripwires: Master The Fundamentals Of Health Coverage Continuation Administration

SKU:WC-1023691
Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar

Description:

As most employers covered by COBRA (and/or its state-law counterparts) know, the law allows terminated employees and their dependents to continue their current group health coverage, paying out of their own pocket, for a certain period of time.

While the law has been around for a while, its complexities make it a source of confusion and concern for employers:

  • Does every employer need to offer federal COBRA continuation coverage to former employees? If not, when do exceptions apply?
  • How long must an employee be enrolled in your group health plan before a “qualifying event” occurs that allows COBRA to kick in?
  • How is the term “beneficiary” defined?
  • What’s considered a “qualifying event”? And what happens when there’s more than one?
  • What steps is HR responsible for when it comes to handling COBRA administration? And how far does that responsibility extend?
  • What constitutes “gross misconduct” that terminates an employee’s right to COBRA?
  • How does COBRA intersect with Medicare and retiree coverage?
Join us when Trucker Huss attorney Callan G. Carter offers expert guidance on COBRA fundamentals and many common misconceptions about your compliance requirements under the federal health coverage continuation law.

Learning Objectives:
  • Who’s entitled to COBRA benefits and when
  • Which plans are subject to the COBRA law, including employee assistance programs (EAPs), wellness programs and health care flexible spending accounts
  • Issues to consider regarding COBRA and retiree medical plans
  • What constitutes a qualifying event
  • Whether the employer is responsible to administer COBRA, or whether another entity may take it on
  • What termination for “gross misconduct” constitutes, legally
  • How to provide the general notice
  • When and how the employer is responsible to notify the plan administrator of a termination or qualifying event
  • How to provide the election notice
  • What constitutes “continuation coverage”, and how long it runs for

This presentation is also available in a recorded format, in On-Demand version, as shown in the pricing options below.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
