The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) gives workers and their families who lose their health benefits the right to choose to continue group health benefits for a limited period of time. If you, as an employer, have 20 or more employees you must offer COBRA benefits to the employee who leaves your company. As a matter of fact, there are several qualifying events under which an employee could claim this benefit. They are:
- Voluntary or involuntary job loss
- Reduction in hours worked
- As a transition between employment
- Death of a loved one
- Spousal loss of benefits
- Loss of “dependent child” status
COBRA administration outlines how employees and family members may elect to continue with group health coverage. The law also requires employers to provide notice of this plan.
The Department of Labor outlines specific processes to follow when applying for and administrating COBRA benefits. An employer must be aware of this process and be versed in items such as availability of health plans, compliance, portability of health coverage, etc. For additional information, please visit the U.S. Department of Labor website – www.dol.gov.
