Who Administers COBRA Insurance?

What is my role as the COBRA Administrator?

A COBRA Administrator is typically someone who works in the Human Resources department. Their first responsibility is to notify the employer’s group health insurance carrier of the employee termination within 14 days.

The COBRA plan administrator sends election notifications with instructions on how to enroll former workers and their families in a continuation of their work health insurance plan once it stops. They will also be responsible for receiving premium payments and cancellations.

This individual is to properly record, track and administer the many steps needed for a business to comply with the law.

An Additional 2% Fee
