ConnectYourCare Announces the Release of New COBRA Administration For DummiesŪ Book

Issued by: ConnectYourCare

Date: July 16, 2020

ConnectYourCare Special Edition demystifies COBRA requirements for employers and brokers

Hunt Valley, MD, June 16, 2020 -- ConnectYourCare, a national leader in consumer-directed health care account solutions and highly compliant COBRA administration, today announced the release of COBRA Administration For Dummies® in partnership with John Wiley & Sons, Inc., publisher of the best-selling “For Dummies” book series.

This new book, written for employers, benefits specialists, and HR personnel administering COBRA—as well as benefits brokers and consultants assisting their clients—simplifies the complex nuances surrounding COBRA, formally known as the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act.

Many employers are mandated to offer COBRA by the U.S. Department of Labor as a means of providing continuing group health insurance coverage for employees and their families after a job loss or other qualifying event. However, benefits personnel who handle COBRA are often left navigating the rules, regulations, and complex administrative work on their own.

Written by ConnectYourCare’s expert COBRA team, this ConnectYourCare Special Edition sheds light on the subject, offering both simplified explanations and detailed descriptions for a number of COBRA topics, including but not limited to:

  • Who COBRA covers, what benefits should be offered, and when
  • Explanations of employee and employer responsibilities for collecting information
  • COBRA notifications and timelines
  • Guidelines for staying compliant and avoiding pitfalls
  • 10 top tips for administering COBRA

“COBRA is notoriously difficult to administer, and ConnectYourCare is thrilled to offer an industry-first COBRA guide that offers clarity straight from our experts,” said Steve Grieco, ConnectYourCare Chief Executive Officer.

“This Special Edition will help employers alleviate administrative pain points and expand their knowledge around COBRA regulations to maintain compliance.”
