COMPLIANCE – is EVERYTHING changing?
The subsidy is still with us – the eligibility may have ended May 31, 2010 but for people involuntarily terminated from employment by that date, they are still eligible for the full 15 months of subsidy. There certainly has been a lot of confusion with ARRA law. This seminar will discuss the differences between being eligible for COBRA and being eligible for the subsidy – two totally different things. We will review the eligibility and how the subsidy has impacted the COBRA election rates.
National HealthCare Reform is here – but, when does it really start to impact your Plan? We began to see major changes in health plans with October renewals. Is your Plan Grandfathered from the National HealthCare changes – which ones? Is trying to stay grandfathered worth the effort – and expense? Who holds the “grandfathered” cards?
One of the biggest changes of National HealthCare Reform is covering dependents to age 26 – married or unmarried! This provision of the law will is causing the most confusion. Communication is the key! You must coordinate your COBRA activities with this dependent eligibility change. Let’s discuss the best way to handle this. And, some carriers have made this change to your contract eligibility early – how is that impacting compliance responsibilities?
AND, those FSA changes are nothing to sneeze at – since the over the counter medications are no longer eligible!! Lots of changes to work through!
