As the employer, you are responsible for notifying your employees and their dependents in writing of their rights to COBRA and Wisconsin continuation coverage. Therefore, you must be familiar with which events are qualifying events for group continuation to be offered to an employee or dependent.
And if your employee or dependent chooses to continue coverage, you need written documentation of their decision to continue. So you need to know the time guidelines that an employee has to elect group continuation.
You are also responsible for collecting the monthly premium payments from the employee or dependent and then paying Dean Health Plan. Again, you will need to know the guidelines regarding when payments can be required from the employee or dependent and when a person can be terminated for nonpayment of premium.
