Webinar: “New ARRA Extension Created By Congress”

Join eCOBRA for A One-hour Webinar on the New ARRA Extension

On Saturday, December 19, the Senate passed the Department of Defense Appropriations Act. This Act includes an extension of the ARRA COBRA subsidy for qualified individuals.  

In this Webinar, our COBRA experts will walk you through the requirements for employers, brokers, and health plans and discuss the new ARRA Extension Regulations. What are the differing notice obligations to those with qualifying event dates before October 31, 2009? What about between October 31 and December 31? What’s required after December 31? It gets complicated but luckily your eCOBRA team is on top of all the details. We’ll explain all of the ARRA  changes and get you ready for the new ARRA Extension rules.

Did you know that the cutoff date for Qualifying Events (QE) has been extended beyond December 31? Plus, the nine-month subsidy has been extended for individuals that are newly and involuntarily terminated as defined by the IRS.

Most importantly, employers and plan sponsors now have new notice obligations. For example, employers are now required to send new extension letters within 60 days of the enactment of the bill. Are you ready?

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

This seminar is free for eCOBRA clients. The cost is $25 for brokers, $99 if the broker wishes to extend an invitation to clients and $25 for all others.  Please email Cheri.Belz@eflexgroup.com for payment instructions.
