Code Number:285067 Q: As an employer, what coverage do I need to offer? A: Generally, the continuation coverage must be the same health benefits the qualified beneficiary had the day before the qualifying event. Those health benefits are defined as medical insurance, dental insurance, vision insurance and prescription drug plans. This medical care can be provided directly, through insurance, reimbursement, or other. An SFA or (health flexible spending accounts) is also considered a health benefit and falls under COBRA law as is a medical reimbursement program under Section 105.
