DOL, IRS, Texas Insurance Officials to Cover COBRA in Free Webcast

The U.S. Department of Labor's Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA) and the Texas Department of Insurance will host a free, two-hour webcast on Nov. 20 from 10 a.m. to noon (CST) to help employers and benefit professionals comply with the federal Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) and the Texas Specific Continuation of Coverage.

This third webcast in a series will feature speakers from EBSA, the Texas Department of Insurance, and the Internal Revenue Service. Speakers will discuss the general guidelines as well as current issues under both federal COBRA and the Texas law. Participants can find an online toolkit of related guidance and publications as well as an archive of past health webcasts at EBSA's Web site, www.dol.gov/ebsa. The seminars are part of EBSA's health education campaign to help workers and employers, especially small businesses, understand their rights and obligations under various health benefit laws.

Designed especially for employers, plan fiduciaries, and providers of plan services, Thursday's webcast is available via online registration on a first-come, first-served basis by visiting the link above and clicking the appropriate link under "Compliance Assistance Workshops, Seminars and Webcasts."
