Effective January 1st, 2014 all groups who participate in the MBA Heath Insurance Trust are COBRA eligible. Previously, COBRA eligibility was based off of the size of your company, starting 1/1/14 and going forward due to the Affordable Care, the definition of the eligible groups has changed. The MBA Health insurance Trust as a whole is now the determiner for COBRA eligibility, regardless of the size of the individual companies that make up the Trust.
This will be good news to employees and their covered dependents who wish to continue, on a self-paid basis, the same insurance benefits they had under your employment.
As always, we wish to make this process as easy as possible for you. We have provided guidelines and notices in Word format with highlighted sections for ease in modification as well as the COBRA election Form. All of this information is available on our website under MBA COBRA.
