The U.S. Department of Labor's Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA), in conjunction with the Internal Revenue Service, announced a further extension of a number of deadlines so workers and employers affected by Hurricane Katrina have additional time to make critical health coverage decisions.
The relief provides additional time to comply with certain deadlines, contained in the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the rules for processing of health claims, that can have a profound impact on workers' health benefits.
