COBRA Changes Impact All Employers Providing Group Health Coverage Columbia February 26, 2009
New changes to COBRA will impact almost every employer. Nexsen Pruet's Employment and Labor Law Group responds by holding a special breakfast briefing on Friday, February 27th.
On February 17, President Barack Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. One key provision in the Stimulus Act provides certain "assistance eligible individuals" with Federal assistance in paying for COBRA continuation under an employer's group medical coverage. Employers should act soon to comply with new notice requirements imposed by the Stimulus Act and protect against future medical claims liability.
Attorneys Mike Brittingham and Sue Odom will lead the one-hour seminar. It is designed to help employers understand the important new rules and will examine steps an employer must take to comply. The presentation will begin at 8am in the firm’s Columbia office (1230 Main Street, Suite 700) and will be available via live video conference at the following locations:
Charlotte, NC (201 S. Tryon St, Suite 1200)
Charleston, SC (205 King St, Suite 400)
Greensboro, NC (701 Green Valley Rd, Suite 100)
Greenville, SC (55 E. Camperdown Way, Suite 400)
Hilton Head, SC (400 Main Street, Suite 100A)
