A message from Aflac

To our policyholders in areas affected by wildfires in designated California counties: Butte, Lake, Mendocino, Napa, Nevada, Orange, Solano, Sonoma, and Yuba, as well as those in areas affected by recent hurricanes in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, please know that the thoughts and prayers of everyone at Aflac are with you. We are working with government agencies that represent all declared disaster areas, including those under emergency order, to ensure we do everything possible to help you. Based on that guidance, we have extended the due dates for policy premiums by 60 days for those living in places that have been declared disaster areas or are under emergency order. If you have a question about your policy or need help, contact us at 800-992-3522. To help with the recovery, Aflac made a $500,000 donation to the American Red Cross, and our employees are making their own private contributions. Please be safe, as the care of you and your families is paramount.

Current model notices inform eligible employees about government marketplace options.

The Department of Labor released revised model COBRA (Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act) election notices in May 2014. These already-required notifications for employers with 20 or more employees clearly outline an employee’s option to purchase health care coverage through a government-facilitated marketplace. If an employee is eligible for COBRA coverage, they can choose to elect COBRA coverage or take advantage of purchasing coverage through the government-facilitated health insurance marketplace in their state.

Although the Affordable Care Act doesn’t require employers to amend their COBRA election notices, government officials auditing group health plans will likely verify that employers are using the current communications.

What you need to do

Replace previous COBRA notification versions with the current model election notice.
