Don’t Forget–COBRA Has Changed

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act changed COBRA.  Under the Act, certain persons who lose health care coverage as a result of an involuntary termination of employment are entitled to a subsidy of 65% of the employee’s cost of COBRA coverage.  Before April 18 of this year, employers subject to COBRA must distribute revised notices to qualified beneficiaries who had a qualifying COBRA event between September 1, 2008 through December 31, 2009.  You can find out more information about this here.
