The COVID-19 national emergency ended. Federal guidance paused group health plan related deadlines (e.g., COBRA election, special enrollment periods, and claims and appeal deadlines) until the earlier of (a) one year from the date when a member was first eligible for relief under the federal guidance, or (b) the end of the outbreak period (the outbreak period ends 60 days after the end of the COVID-19 national emergency) or another date announced by the Labor Department, the Treasury Department and the IRS. Please consult with the employer offering the plan with questions about these deadlines.
