American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Temporary Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) Pre
CalHR is implementing further guidance in the payment and reimbursement process for the temporary Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) subsidy pandemic relief under the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), in addition to the May 6, 2021, memorandum.
The memo to departments outlines the processes to remit premiums to carriers for assistance eligible individuals (AEIs) and to receive reimbursement for premium payments. The memo references the Payee Data Record (STD. 204) forms. Each carrier has completed a 204 and they we will be added to the CalHR ARPA page so departments can access them when paying premiums.
