In order to ensure the appropriate options are offered for continuation of coverage it is important to understand whether the employer is eligible for COBRA or State Continuation. Should their continuation eligibility status change, employers may update this through their mewa.io employer portal. Additionally, the plan manager may perform annual audits asking employers to verify their status.
Employers may view their continuation status at any time by clicking the “Continuation Status” option in the Employer Portal main navigation.
If the employer needs to make a change, they may click “Change Continuation Status”.
Continuation eligibility status may only be changed once per year. If the employer’s continuation status has been changed within the past year, this option will be disabled.
The employer will be prompted to input the current number of employees as well as provide supporting documentation.
Once submitted, the plan manager will review the request and the employer will be notified as to whether the request was approved or denied. Any notes provided by the plan manager will also be included in this notification.
