End of COBRA Subsidy Notice Is Due

Under the most recent COVID-19 relief law approved by Congress, assistance eligible individuals (AEIs) were made eligible for a COBRA premium subsidy between April 1, 2021 and Sept. 30, 2021.

In this update, OMA Connections Partner Vorys reports that plan administrators (or their third-party COBRA administrators) are required to provide a notice of the expiration of the premium subsidy at least 15 days before an AEI’s subsidy expires. For AEIs who will lose the subsidy due to the end of the subsidy period on Sept. 30, the notice was to be provided by Sept. 15. 9/14/2021
