SPECIAL LEGISLATIVE MEETING: ARPA and the COBRA Subsidies (mini COBRA) presented by David Mordo, Compliance Specialist Benefit Mall

Attendees will receive 1 CE credit (Course #107337)

On March 11, 2021, President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) of 2021 into law.  This law requires employers to subsidize the cost of Cobra continuation coverage (including Mini-Cobra) from April 1, 2021 – September 30, 2021.  Mr. Mordo will dive deep into the responsibilities of the employer and the notices they need to send out to former employees who were involuntarily terminated from their positions, who is responsible to pay these premiums and how the employer is reimbursed for these premiums via subsidies from the Government.

David Mordo started his insurance career in 1980 as a Sales Representative with Metropolitan Life Insurance Company in his hometown of Brooklyn, New York. In 1985, he branched out on his own, leaving MetLife and opening D. Mordo & Associates LLC in New York City selling individual life and disability insurance, group health and life insurance and annuities.

David sold his agency in 1994 after having moved to Middletown, New Jersey and took a job as a sales representative with Colburn Insurance Services in Manasquan, NJ selling group health insurance products and also started to recruit brokers to the agency.

In December of 2000, Dave went to work at Walsh Benefits, an employee benefits General Agency located in Fair Haven, NJ where he directed the Small Group Operations department.

In July of 2013, Dave was named Vice President of Education, Compliance & Medicare Operations for Walsh Benefits. In that capacity, Dave worked with the agency’s brokers to prepare them for changes in the industry as a result of the Affordable Care Act.

In February of 2016, went to work as Director of Compliance and Broker Education at Slattery GA, a subsidiary of Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. in Holmdel, NJ. Dave is now a Compliance Specialist with BenefitMall via its acquisition of Slattery GA in May of 2018.

He is also Director of the BenefitMall School of Insurance where he teaches continuing education courses to brokers in many states around the country.

In his 41 years in the industry, Dave has focused on consulting with brokers as well as small and large employers in the area of ERISA, HIPAA and PPACA and other employer issues concerning healthcare and health insurance. His advocacy on behalf on employers has taken him to the halls of Trenton and Washington, D.C. where he speaks with state and federal legislators and regulators.

As an active member of NAHU since 1999, Dave has served as a chapter president and local and state legislative chair. Nationally, Dave has served on NAHU’s Finance, Governance, LPRT and Media Relations Committees. He served on NAHU’s National Legislative Council from 2011 to 2017 and was NAHU’s National Legislative Chair in 2016. He recently became an instructor with NAHU's Online Learning Institute, teaching a few of the certification courses.
