On Feb. 10, NADP joined a coalition of nearly 90 companies and organizations including public-and private-sector employers, nonprofits, chambers of commerce, patient advocacy groups, insurers, hospitals, brokers, church plans, unions, and multinational companies in the letter to congressional leaders asking them to include COBRA funding in the next COVID-19 relief package. NADP has long advocated for Congress to provide temporary federal subsidization of COBRA premiums. Last Spring, NADP urged Congress to consider taking actions to help cover the cost of coverage for the furloughed and newly unemployed during an unfortunate time of economic instability. NADP will continue to engage in efforts to ensure people keep their employment-based health insurance coverage as talks on COVID relief continue next week.
