ARPA & COBRA

What HR Leaders Need to Know 

The recent American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) is bringing sweeping changes for employers. One of the biggest? Effective  April 1, 2021 through September 30, 2021 the government will  subsidize 100% of COBRA premiums for qualified employees who lost their health plan coverage during the pandemic. Under the new law, these employees are eligible to maintain (and in some cases change, if the employer permits) the level of health coverage they had while employed.

That raises a LOT of questions for HR and Benefits Leaders on what exactly they need to do next. Join our free webinar Wednesday, April 7 to get answers from our COBRA compliance lawyer, as he details what the ARPA means for your business and how HR can navigate the new requirements without incurring legal penalties or footing the bill. 

What you will learn:

What specific impacts ARPA will have on COBRA, employees and employers 

How the additional COBRA premiums will actually be funded 

Official DOL timelines and deadlines to avoid financial penalties 

Plus, ask our legal benefits expert your questions in a live Q&A
