The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) of 2021 is a $1.9 trillion economic stimulus bill passed by the 117th United States Congress and signed into law by President Joe Biden on March 11, 2021. The bill includes a 100% subsidy on COBRA premiums from April through September of 2021. COBRA is already a complex set of laws and regulations with many traps for the unwary, and mistakes can be costly. Fully subsidized coverage will likely dramatically increase COBRA elections and employer administration time.
During our free webinar labor attorney, Stephanie Grant, will cover:
• Subsidy participant eligibility
• Subsidy plan eligibility
• Length of subsidized coverage
• Election timeframes
• Retroactive elections
Stephanie will present for 60 minutes regarding the above topic. We devote the remainder of the time to Q&A and information regarding BASIC COBRA. BASIC’s webinar is approved for 1.0 HRCI and 1.0 SHRM-CP advanced credits for HR professionals worldwide. Credits are for live attendance only.
