The ARPA requires group health plans to provide, by May 31, notices to AEIs who are losing their health care coverage and are eligible for COBRA premium assistance. This notice may be provided separately or by using a revised COBRA election notice, such as the new model general notice (see link below). Employers can begin using the new notices immediately.
The ARPA also requires that plans and issuers provide AEIs with a Notice of Expiration of Premium Assistance that explains the subsidy will expire soon for them—either because their COBRA eligibility has reached its maximum time limit or because the subsidy period is ending as of Sept. 30, the date of the expiration and that the individual may be eligible for coverage without any premium assistance.
