COBRA Solution from FBA
What is COBRA?
COBRA is the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act. Instituted in 1985, COBRA was developed to protect individuals from a loss of coverage from a group benefit plan due to termination, retirement, reduced hours or other qualifying events. If you are an employer and you employed 20 or more full-time employees or equivalent part-time employees in the preceding year and offer a group benefit plan, you are required to adhere to the regulations created by COBRA as well as HIPAA.
Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA)
When an individual loses coverage, COBRA offers the individual the opportunity to continue receiving benefits. If the individual chooses to elect COBRA, it is their responsibility to pay the full monthly premium amount. As the employer, it is your responsibility to ensure your company remains within compliance.
Falling outside of compliance can be a costly mistake. Many employers today simply do not have the time or resources to stay on top of the complex and ever-changing laws surrounding COBRA and HIPAA administration.
Outsourcing your COBRA administration not only lowers your risk of falling out of compliance, but it also allows you to redirect your focus back to the success of your business.
