Mini-COBRA Timeframe Extension Information

The recent Department of Labor (DOL) regulation requiring COBRA timeframe extensions DOES NOT apply to mini-COBRA groups. COBRA regulations state that an employer qualifies as mini-COBRA if they employ fewer than 20 employees on at least 50 percent of the employer’s “typical business days” in the prior year.

Groups identified as mini-COBRA will operate under traditional COBRA regulations and will not be subject to the most recent DOL regulatory changes related to COVID-19.
