COBRA Model Notices Released

 The US DOL has released, on their website, the model notices for COBRA subsidy.

The Department of Labor has just released their model notices for the COBRA subsidy available under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). There are two formats of the General Notice, one full and the other abbreviated. Also drafted by the DOL and on their webpage are an alternative notice for insurance issuers and a notice in connection with the extended election period. A link to the DOL’s website with the model notices is listed below.  Staffscapes will have more information about the COBRA subsidy notices after we have had time to review the models issued by the DOL.
