Description:

The Six Biggest COBRA Administrative Mistakes - And How To Avoid Them

Though COBRA was instituted in the 1980s, employers still demonstrate a lack of adherence to a number of several rules integral to COBRA administration.

These rules include - but are not limited to - providing Open Enrollment rights, a General Notice, and COBRA Election Notices, acknowledging certain Qualifying Events, and having an accurate understanding of requirements for situations involving Medicare issues.

A seemingly insignificant mistake in any of these areas could cost an organization heavily through penalties, fines, court awards, and in some instances, large medical claims.

Learning Objectives

"The Six Biggest COBRA Administrative Mistakes – And How To Avoid Them", will provide you with an in-depth discussion of these COBRA-related issues - and the steps you can take to ensure compliance with the requirements.

Examples of questions addressed in this presentation include:

  • What is the purpose behind providing a General Notice, who must receive it, and how should it be distributed?
  • How does Workers' Compensation affect the definition of a Qualifying Event?
  • Should employers offer COBRA to ex-spouses of employees following a divorce? If so, what is the date of the Qualifying Event?
  • If an employee is terminated and offered a severance agreement which includes the continuation of coverage under the health plan, when should the employer offer COBRA? At the date of termination, or once the severance agreement offer runs out?

We'll also have a Q&A session where you can ask your COBRA-related questions!
