DOL Requests Comments on COBRA Subsidy

in Affordable Care Act, COBRA

This morning, DOL published an information request regarding the COBRA subsidy.  Except for unique situations, the COBRA subsidy has already run its course and will likely not be revived in the near future.  However, DOL would like to know what interested parties thought of the subsidy and what worked and what didn’t work.  Comments are due by February 10, 2012. http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2011-12-12/pdf/2011-31824.pdf
