The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (“ARRA”) provided a COBRA premium reduction for eligible individuals who were involuntarily terminated from employment through the end of May 2010. The premium reduction applied to periods of coverage beginning on or after February 17, 2009. The premium reduction for an individual ended upon eligibility for other group coverage (or Medicare) after 15 months of the reduction or when the maximum period of COBRA coverage ends, whichever occurred first. Due to the statutory sunset, the COBRA premium reduction under ARRA is not available for individuals who experience involuntary terminations after May 31, 2010. However, individuals who qualified on or before May 31, 2010, will continue to pay reduced premiums for up to 15 months, as long as they are not eligible for another group health plan or Medicare. On July 22, 2010, President Obama signed the Unemployment Compensation Extension Act of 2010, which did not extend the COBRA premium reduction.
