The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) is a Federal law that was enacted in April 1986. The law requires that employer groups of 20 or more provide for temporary health, dental and/or vision coverage for employees and/or their eligible dependents after a qualifying event has occurred. A qualifying event includes termination of employment, reduction in work hours, divorce or legal separation, employee’s death, an employee’s entitlement to Medicare benefits, or a dependent’s loss of coverage due to ineligibility.
