Health Care Reform and FAQs

 The DOL post FAQs regarding the impact of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act on COBRA.

Document Excerpt

Q1: Did the health care reform legislation extend the COBRA premium extension?
No. The new health care reform legislation, The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) as amended by the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act, did not extend the eligibility time period for the COBRA premium reduction. Eligibility for the subsidy ends May 31, 2010; however, those individuals who become eligible on or before May 31, 2010 can still receive the full 15 months as long as they remain otherwise eligible.
