How do I administer COBRA to an employee?

If you... 
  • 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.
