The Agenda.


This webinar will provide an overview of COBRA. We will focus on how COBRA applies to non-traditional plans such as health reimbursement arrangements (HRAs), employee assistance programs (EAPs), on-site or pop-up clinics, and flexible spending arrangements (FSAs). This webinar will describe how COBRA and Medicare interact, and will also discuss COBRA’s application in mergers and acquisitions.

This webinar will:

  • Provide an overview of COBRA and its regulations
  • Discuss state “mini-COBRA” laws for small employers
  • Discuss state laws that impose supplemental requirements beyond COBRA for large employers
  • Discuss how a plan’s status as fully-insured or self-funded will affect whether the state “mini-COBRA” laws apply

This 60-minute intermediate level webinar will help employers understand how COBRA applies to non-traditional plans, in the Medicare context and in mergers and acquisitions.
