Navigating COBRA Compliance

With the passage of the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) in 1985, terminated employees or their family members who lose coverage due to certain events may be able to continue under a company’s group health plan for limited periods of time.
The single most common reason for COBRA lawsuits over the last 20 years was allegations of “improper notice.” Without proof of compliance, a company could be liable for:

IRS Excise Tax

  • ERISA fines
  • Department of Labor lawsuits
  • Ex-employee claims
  • Damages
  • Attorney fees

Administratively, your COBRA responsibilities begin with an initial COBRA notification to covered employees and dependents, and continue with activities such as:

  • Qualifying event-related COBRA notification and/or extensions
  • Ongoing billing for correct COBRA eligibility period
  • Collection and premium payment
  • Tracking COBRA completion dates

Without proof of compliance, you could be liable for ERISA fines (up to $110 per employee per day of noncompliance) and IRS excise taxes (up to $200 per employee per day). In addition, legal fees and retroactive claim payments can add to your expenses.
