New Special Enrollment Period for COBRA Participants
Hill, Chesson & Woody Link to more items from this source
May 20, 2014
"While this is welcome news for some COBRA beneficiaries, there are three important things that employers should know about the new special enrollment period. [1] The special enrollment period applies only to Federally-Facilitated Marketplaces.... [2]  If a COBRA qualified beneficiary elects COBRA during the election period, COBRA coverage will be retroactive to the date of the qualifying event.... Marketplace coverage is prospective only.... [3] Consider a targeted communication to employees and COBRA-qualified beneficiaries on available coverage options."
