As you know, Governor Mike Dewine declared a state of emergency in Ohio to protect Ohioans from the effects of COVID-19. Below are two important updates in regard to group medical plans that have recently been issued:
- Insurance Companies are relaxing the actively at work requirement in the policy. This will allow employees who are laid off to remain on the group plan and continue their coverage. The employer will be billed for their premium.
- On Friday, Lt. Governor Jon Husted announced that premiums for this coverage could be deferred for up to 60 days. This does not mean that premiums will be waived. You will still need to pay these premiums.
