Important Update on COBRA Extensions Related to COVID-19 Legislation
In this ever-changing legislative environment, we are making every effort to keep you as up to date as possible. Below is a guide we put together to identify and help visualize the various timeframes and a list of actions we are taking to keep your plans compliant with the most recent rulings specifically affecting COBRA.
Special Note Regarding State Continuation
While the federal regulations have encouraged states to adopt similar extensions, it is not a requirement. We have been working diligently with legal counsel to ensure that we are handling the various state continuation rules appropriately. At this point, we are not aware that any state for which we administer continuation for a specific client has adopted similar rules.

We are NOT including MN life insurance in any of the above notices unless you reach out to us specifically and tell us that you / your life insurance carrier are handling it differently (e.g. leaving life insurance coverage election and payment periods “open” during the extension periods). Please contact your Relationship Manager if you would like us to include MN life insurance in the notices.
Special Note regarding State Continuation
Since we only report eligibility to the various carriers with whom our clients have relationships, we will not be addressing any of the claims filing or appeal extensions in our participant communications. As such, you may want to contact your carrier to determine how they will handle these extensions.
As always, we are committed to providing exceptional service by keeping you abreast of the latest regulations as they affect the benefits that we administer on your behalf. Please do not hesitate to reach out to your Relationship Manager if you have any questions or other feedback.
Thank you for your partnership!
