COBRA Premium Reduction Denial Review Form Published

The DOL has posted on its website an Application for Review of Denial of COBRA Premium.

Document Excerpt

General Information: If you or a family member has lost employment, a new law may make it possible for you to keep your employment-related health coverage. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) provides for premium assistance for health benefits under the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985, commonly called COBRA.  The premium assistance is also available for continuation coverage under certain State laws. For coverage periods beginning on or after February 17, 2009, assistance eligible individuals pay only 35% of their continuation coverage premiums to the plan for the first nine months. The remaining 65% is reimbursed to the plan, employer, or health insurance issuer through a payroll tax credit.
