How do I administer COBRA to an employee?
- Use COBRA Complete: Select ‘Yes’ for COBRA Administration in the employee termination flow. More information about the termination flow can be found here.
- Do not use COBRA Complete: The group is responsible for notifying their TPAthat the member is eligible. If they do not use a TPA, the group is responsible for administering directly. Zenefits is not able to advise as to what steps the client must take to self-administer. The Department of Labor offers this guide that may help.
- Just initiated takeover for COBRA Complete: Until your account is active, continue to administer COBRA for any existing or new qualified beneficiaries. The implementation timeline can be found here.
- Have state administered COBRA: Here is a guide to understanding COBRA in carrier-administered states.
