Licensed, Bonded and Insured. Those three words are very important when outsourcing your COBRA administration. Most Third-Party Administrators are not insured for the liability in the event of an error under COBRA Administration. Your company may get back a portion of the administration fee if the TPA makes an error, but what about the $1,000,000 medical bill that your company has to pay because of that error? We have the insurance to cover any errors, should they occur.
