Arizona: State’s COBRA law goes into effect
December 31, 2018
On April 10, 2018, Governor Ducey signed Senate Bill 1217, a law that provides employees with state-level benefits similar to those provided by the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985 (COBRA). Under the new law, employees who experience a qualifying event are allowed to continue their health care benefits coverage at their own cost. The new law requires employers to provide notices to employees of their continuation rights at the time of a qualifying event. Other obligations and limitation apply.
The new law becomes effective on December 31, 2018.
