Legal Alert: COBRA Subsidy Extended Until March 31, 2010


On March 2, 2010, President Obama signed legislation that, among other things, extends the eligibility period for the COBRA subsidy provided in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) for an additional 30 days. The Temporary Extension Act of 2010, H.R. 4691, extends the eligibility date for the COBRA subsidy from February 28, 2010 to March 31, 2010. The ARRA permits "assistance eligible individuals" to receive a 65% subsidy of the COBRA premiums they would be required to pay for any group health plan in which they participated at the time of their termination.
