The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985 (COBRA) requires certain employers to provide former employees and dependents who lose group health benefits with an opportunity to continue group health insurance coverage for a limited period of time. COBRA is a complex set of laws and regulations with many traps for the unwary, and mistakes can be costly. Employers are attempting to continue health coverage of employees during this unprecedented worldwide event, even where employees are furloughed or laid-off. However, it’s important to know what is permissible in terms of health coverage in these circumstances.
