It’s not to late to bring your organization into compliance with the new COBRA mandates that are included in the federal stimulus package signed into law by President Obama.
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) provides significant changes that immediately affect all employers including hospitals, hospices, home health agencies, visiting nurse agencies, technology companies, software development companies, medical suppliers, consulting firms, pharmaceutical companies and other organizations.
The COBRA changes also impact self-insured employees that pay medical claims.
To help employers make sense of these new mandates that are already in effect a special audio webcast has been organized.
Join attorney Jason A. Rothman from the highly regarded Jackson Lewis law firm for a careful review of the law provisions and what your organization must be doing now.
The changes affect all employers and employee organizations including unions with group health plans, even those not currently subject to COBRA. These changes went into effect for most employers March 1, 2009 even though the law was not signed until mid-February.
Join Health Resources Publishing and Jason Rothman this live 60-minute audio webcast “How the New Mandated COBRA Provisions Impact Your Organization: Are You in Compliance Right Now?” that took place in April 2009 .
