Total Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 14,350. Total Estimated Annual Costs Burden (excludes hourly wage costs): $8,000. Description: The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Pub. L. 111–5) provides for premium assistance and expanded eligibility for health benefits under the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1986, commonly called COBRA. This premium assistance is not paid directly to the covered employee or the qualified beneficiary, but instead is in the form of a tax credit for the health plan, the employer, or the insurer. An individual must be an ‘‘assistance eligible individual’’ to be eligible for the premium assistance. If eligible, these individuals pay only 35% of their COBRA premiums to the plan and the remaining 65% is paid through the tax credit. Eligible individuals can start getting the premium assistance as of the first day of coverage beginning on or after February 17, 2009. If individuals request treatment as an assistance eligible individual and are denied such treatment because of their ineligibility for COBRA continuation coverage, the Secretary of Labor must make a determination within 15 business days after receipt of an individual’s application for review. The Application to the Department of Labor for Expedited Review of Denial of COBRA Premium Reduction (the ‘‘Application’’) is the form used by individuals to file their expedited review appeals. Such individuals must complete all information requested on the Application in order to file their review requests with the Department’s Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA). An Application PO 00000 Frm 00073 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 48781 may be denied if sufficient information is not provided. In certain situations, EBSA will have to contact plan administrators for additional information regarding an applicant’s appeal of a denial of premium reduction. The ‘‘Plan Administrator Information Sheet’’ will be used for this purpose in cases where the Department has otherwise been unable to contact a plan administrator regarding a filed application.
