Shub Lawyers is investigating claims that employers have failed to deliver proper COBRA health care benefits election notices to terminated employees.
When employees lose health care coverage under a group or company health plan as a result of termination, the employee may be entitled to COBRA continuation coverage. In many cases, employers fail to communicate necessary COBRA election information as required by the Department of Labor’s model election notice, breaking compliance.
