May 1, 2014


On May 2, 2014, the DOL released proposed regulations, which would amend the COBRA notice requirements to reflect changes made by the ACA.

The DOL also released updated versions of the model general notice and model election notice under COBRA, which reflect that the Exchanges are now open, and which better describe special enrollment rights in Exchange coverage.

Additionally, on May 2nd, HHS issued a clarifying bulletin (PDF) providing an Exchange special enrollment period for COBRA enrollees.
