Plan sponsors may forget that a change in the benefits under the plan for active employees will apply also to qualified beneficiaries. It is important to note that qualified beneficiaries must be allowed to make the same choices given to non-COBRA beneficiaries under the plan, such as during periods of open enrollment. This means that all COBRA beneficiaries must receive the same opportunity to change plans or enroll in new plans as if they were active employees or plan members.
