DOL Issues New Model COBRA Notices

The Department of Labor (DOL) has issued two new Model Notices designed to help group health plans inform participants of their rights to continue group health coverage under COBRA.  The Model Notices reflect the requirements applicable to single-employer group health plans and must be modified if they are used to provide notice of rights under other types of plans.

 

According to a notice of proposed rule-making to be published on May 7, 2014, the DOL plans to maintain updated Model Notices on its website.
