New Individual Market COBRA Special Enrollment Period Effective January 1, 2022

On May 5, 2021, CMS released the Notice of Benefit and Payment Parameters (NBPP) for the 2022 plan year final rule, and it included a new/modified qualifying event for a special enrollment period (SEP). The existing SEP for Involuntary Loss of Minimum Essential Coverage included the end of COBRA coverage. The new SEP now includes loss of employer contributions to COBRA. The updated Qualifying Event Grids reflect this change.
