COBRA Administration

The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985, more commonly known as COBRA, is a federal regulation that requires employers to offer certain employees and their qualified beneficiaries the option to continue their group health insurance coverage following termination, loss of hours, or other qualifying events.

You may be required to offer COBRA coverage if your business:

  • Offers group health plans to its employees, and
  • Has had 20 or more employees during at least half of the typical working days in the previous calendar year.
