"COBRA" Coverage Continuation

Failure to Comply

Employers who fail to comply with the COBRA Rules can incur an excise tax of $ 1 00 per affected beneficiary for each day of non-compliance.  If the failure to comply is not intentional, but due to "reasonable cause," the maximum excise tax is limited to 10% of the prior year's group health plan costs (with a maximum of $500,000).
