Buck Link to more items from this source
[Guidance Overview]
June 3, 2014
"While CMS created this new special enrollment window to address what it expressed as the problem of previous COBRA notices insufficiently addressing marketplace options, the bulletin does not require employers to notify qualified beneficiaries about the special enrollment opportunity. Even so, employers looking to reduce their COBRA-related costs and/or ensure that qualified beneficiaries are aware of this special enrollment period may wish to consider a directed communication about this development. Given the July 1, 2014 deadline, such communication should be sent as soon as possible."
