Employers that sponsor group health plans enable their employees and their families to take care of their essential medical needs, ensuring that they can devote their energies to productive work.
One of the employee protections contained in the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) is the right to Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) continuation coverage, a temporary continuation of group health coverage that would otherwise be lost due to specific life events.
Employers that do not meet their COBRA obligations may face steep penalties and mandatory compliance reporting requirements.
