New ARRA Extension Created By Congress—eCOBRA 1 Hour Webinar

The Senate passed the Department of Defense Appropriations Act Saturday which includes an extension of the ARRA COBRA subsidy for qualified individuals.  

The learner outcomes are the requirements for employers, brokers, and health plans to perform under the new ARRA Extension Regulations. What are the differing notice obligations to those with qualifying event dates before October 31, 2009, after that date but before December 31, 2009, and after? We will address all the new changes. This seminar will get you ready for the new ARRA Extension rules.

For example, Qualifying Events (QE) occurring after the original December 31, 2009 cutoff date is extended.  The 9 month subsidy for individuals that new involuntarily terminated as defined by the IRS are extended.

Most importantly, employers and plan sponsors now have new notice obligations. An example is that employers are required to send the new extension letters within 90 days of the enactment of the bill.

Please join us for our presentation on the new law, the new obligations and to engage us with your questions.

This seminar is free for our eCOBRA clients. The cost is $25.00 for brokers, $99.00 if the broker wishes to extend an invitation to clients and $25.00 for all others.  Please email Cheri.Belz@eflexgroup.com for payment instructions.
