COBRA SUBSIDIES UNDER THE AMERICAN RESCUE PLAN ACT OF 2021
The recently announced American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) provides COBRA premium subsidies for assistance eligible individuals (“AEIs”) between April 1, 2021 and September 30, 2021. We encourage all employer groups to seek legal guidance or learn about your responsibilities under this provision of the ARPA by visiting the DOL website: www.dol.gov/agencies/ebsa/laws-and-regulations/laws/cobra/premium-subsidy
HDS is here to assist our employer groups through this process. While we cannot provide advice, we are here to help you maintain dental benefits for eligible individuals during this period. Be aware that any member calls regarding the eligibility for the subsidy will be directed back to their former employer. View our HDS procedures for the ARPA COBRA Subsidy.
