Administering COBRA - Checklist

Author: Francis P. Morley

COBRA requires group health plans to offer continuation coverage to covered employees and their dependents upon loss of coverage under a group health plan. COBRA also requires group health plans to provide covered employees and their dependents with specific notices explaining their rights under COBRA.

Group health plans must also have rules for how continuation coverage is offered, how coverage can be elected and when coverage can be terminated.
