UPDATE:  Model COBRA Notices Published by the DOL

On January 13, 2010, the United States Department of Labor finally published the long awaited model Notices extending the COBRA premium subsidy needed by employers, insurers and health care plan administrators in order to comply with the notification requirements under the 2010 Department of Defense Appropriations Act (“DOD Act”).  Three different updated model Notices were released and are to be used depending on the particular circumstance; (i) a General Notice, to be provided to all qualified beneficiaries, (ii) a Premium Assistance Extension Notice, to be provided to those who have already been provided a COBRA election notice which did not include information about the premium subsidy, and (iii) an Alternative Notice, to be provided to those that are eligible for health care continuation coverage under a particular State law.  Copies of all three Notices may be found on the U.S. Department of Labor’s website, at www.dol.gov/ebsa/COBRAmodelnotice.html.
