BAS’ Cobra Control Services (CCS) advises COBRA continuants about a company’s premium changes when renewal amounts are timely communicated to CCS. It is important to keep CCS advised about plan renewal dates, as well as the renewed premium amounts. CCS identifies the renewal date in its system, and sends an email to the employer requesting the new rates approximately 30 days before the plan rates are set to renew.
In anticipation of health care reform, some group health plans are changing their renewal dates to take advantage of lower premium increases. If a renewal date is changing, CCS needs to be advised of the date change in order to request new rates and administer COBRA properly for continuants. Please contact your account manager or email@example.com if your plan’s renewal date changes.
