Complying with Cobra Today
Speaker: Kirsten Stiening,Cobra Customer Relations Supervisor at Discovery Benefits
This presentation will outline the basics of handling COBRA administration in today's workplace. It will start basic, explaining what COBRA is and defining which employers (and which plans) are required to comply with COBRA. Then it will take a look at some general processes that are typically followed to help in ensuring compliance with the COBRA regulations (notice requirements, timelines, length of coverage, etc.). It will then wrap up with an overview of the newly enacted ARRA (American Reinvestment and Recovery Act of 2009) legislation and the affect it's signing had on the federal COBRA regulations.
