COBRA Subsidy

HCA is aware that Congress recently passed, and President Biden signed into law, the American Rescue Plan Act, which provides economic relief related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

One provision is a 100 percent subsidy of the monthly COBRA premium starting April 1, 2021 through September 30, 2021. This subsidy applies only to certain qualified beneficiaries (employees, spouses, or dependent children) under the PEBB and SEBB Programs who are eligible under federal COBRA laws. It does not apply to state-registered domestic partners and their dependent children, and any other dependents who are not qualified beneficiaries under federal COBRA laws.

HCA staff are assessing eligibility criteria for the subsidy and developing communications. More  information will follow in the coming weeks.
