Notice of Early Termination

Reference Number: MTAS-1542
Reviewed Date: 10/21/2022

This notice mandates that the plan administrator send to covered employees and QBs a notice in the event their COBRA coverage terminates before the maximum COBRA coverage period.

The law states that this be sent as soon as practicable.

This notice is sent from the plan administrator to covered employees and QBs and should include the reason for and termination date of health benefits any rights the QB has to elect alternative group or individual coverage.

An example of the need for a notice of early termination is an employer terminating the health plan which means, in effect, an individual’s COBRA coverage would terminate earlier than the full-time period for which COBRA was offered to that individual.
