From the KS Health and Welfare Team:
Yesterday the Senate passed HR 4851, the Continuing Extension Act of 2010, which included an extension of the COBRA subsidy. Later, the House approved the bill as well, and President Obama signed the measure late last night.
The bill extends the end of the COBRA subsidy period from March 31, 2010 to May 31, 2010.
Plans will need to update their notices as well as send updated notices to individuals who terminated on or after April 1, 2010 that did not receive a subsidy notice previously and allow late enrollments for individuals who did not receive a subsidy notice previously.
