We will continue to add features to the website throughout 2015.

The new features will be accessible from any device -- PC, smart phone, or tablet!
Our website was uniquely designed with the recommendations and feedback received from our valued customers. The new site can be found at www.mycobrahelp.com as of Monday, January 26th. Your dedicated Account Manager will be available to assist you with any questions or concerns as we continue to add features to the website. In addition, tutorial videos will be available for any new features.
Affordable Care Act Changes That May Impact Your CobraHelp Service
The Department of Labor and Federal government have issued guidance that the requirement to provide a HIPAA Certificate will no longer be necessary after January 1, 2015 due to the fact that the Affordable Care Act has outlawed preexisting conditions exclusions.
Effective January 1, 2015, group health plans and insurers are no longer required to issue a certificate of creditable coverage (“HIPAA Certificate”) to individuals who lost group health plan coverage. HIPAA Certificates were used by individuals to prove that they had continuous health coverage under a prior health plan in order to offset a preexisting condition exclusion period under a new health plan.
See final regulations here: http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2014-02-24/pdf/2014-03809.pdf
This may impact you if you have CobraHelp’s HIPAA Certificate Service. If you have this service and wish to discontinue in lieu of the recent law changes, please contact our office and we will cancel your HIPAA Certificates effective immediately.

We understand the many aspects of employee benefits, compliance, and the many challenges that human resource departments are faced with. With ever-changing laws, such as the Affordable Care Act, this adds to the already long list of daily “to-do’s”.
