If an individual’s request to be treated as a COBRA-subsidy eligible individual is denied (see prior Benefit Beat articles: COBRA Subsidy Guidance from the IRS and COBRA Subsidy - Information Support), then he/she may request a review of the denial from the Department of Labor. One can obtain information and apply for the review of the denial via the DOL’s website. If the continuation coverage is provided through a federal, state or local government plan, or provided in accordance with a state’s mini-COBRA law, then the individual should direct their request for review of the denial to the Department of Health and Human Services.
