President Obama Extends Cobra Subsidy
As part of the Department of Defense bill, the extension of the COBRA subsidy was enacted by the Senate and signed by President Obama. It extends eligibility for the subsidy to those individuals terminated through February 2010 and extends the period of payments eligibility for the subsidy to 15 months (from 9 months). Employers have 60 days from the bill's enactment to send notices to all impacted individuals regarding the extended period (late February 2010).

Healthcare Reform
On November 18th LSA hosted a client luncheon at the Century Hotel in Tualatin. The topic was the hotly debated reform efforts of our elected officials in Congress. Attendees learned about the bills moving through both houses of Congress and their likely impact to both individuals and businesses. Our intent is to present an updated version of this seminar in January via the web. For those who were not able to attend the seminar we are including a copy of it (as a PDF document) for your convenience.
