Recognizing and Addressing COBRA

Lorman Education Services

Dec. 10, 2019
Recorded Online

With health care insurance evolving, so has COBRA and the way employers are required to manage it. Get up to speed to make sure you’re in compliance.

COBRA compliance presents many risks, some of which can be catastrophic. It is critical that employers provide required notices and accurate information about employees’ rights and obligations under COBRA from beginning to end of the employment relationship, and ensure proper administration of its COBRA compliance program. Failure to do so can result in an employer being responsible for major medical expenses out of its own pocket.

This topic will cover the legislative rationale that underlies COBRA continuation coverage as well as the nuts and bolts of compliance. Following this material, you will be able to develop internal systems to ensure compliance, recognize potential issues early on before they become problems, and determine whether outsourcing COBRA compliance to a third party makes sense.

Learning Objectives:

  • You will be able to describe the primary components of COBRA continuation coverage and how they work.
  • You will be able to define employer obligations to ensure you’re complying with COBRA requirements.
  • You will be able to identify the most common COBRA compliance pitfalls and how to avoid them.
  • You will be able to discuss how to make an informed judgment as to whether to outsource COBRA compliance to a third party.
