Description:

The Consolidated Ombibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985 (COBRA) requires employers' group health plans provide certain employees and their family members the right to temporarily continue health coverage under the plan at group rates.

This webinar will help you comply with COBRA by understanding which of your employees are eligible for COBRA rights (‘qualified beneficiaries'), when they become eligible for COBRA (‘qualifying events') and what happens if an employee elects COBRA continuation coverage.

In March 2012, the IRS released a publication titled ‘Audit Techniques and Tax Law to Examine COBRA Cases.' This publication signifies increased audit activity on COBRA compliance. This information will also help you identify and prepare for the areas of focus in an IRS COBRA audit.

We will help you prepare for an IRS COBRA audit by explaining what you should be doing to comply with COBRA, how to respond to an auditor's document request, and what to expect if the auditor asks to interview you. This information is critical for employers to properly prepare for an IRS COBRA audit and avoid the significant penalties that may apply.

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.
