COBRA administration isn’t easy. Although COBRA has been federal law for more than 30 years, the law remains a challenge for many employers. While the basic rules of COBRA may seem straight-forward, it’s a complex law with many nuances that present unique administrative obstacles for employers.
Because COBRA has been a law for some time now, the law has become an afterthought for many employers, leaving them open to potential mistakes that could prove to be very costly.
When deciding to outsource the administration of your COBRA program, your goals should be to reduce your workload, risk, and costs. UnifyHR can reduce all three with a single, easy-to-use program that allows you to fulfill your COBRA requirements and ensures fair, compassionate service for your participants while maintaining strict compliance with the law.
We’ve designed our COBRA administration service to reduce the work required of employers as much as possible. Once an employer notifies us of COBRA-related events, we do the rest of the work and provide updates to the employer so they can update their records take any actions necessary on their end (such as processing the premium remittance checks we send each month).
