Question: I am eligible for the premium reduction and have been enrolled in COBRA coverage since before the ARRA’s enactment. Can I get a refund of 65% of the premiums I have paid prior to the law’s enactment?
Answer: No. The premium reduction provisions apply only to premiums for coverage periods beginning on or after February 17, 2009. If you were eligible for the reduction but paid in full for periods of COBRA coverage beginning on or after February 17, 2009, you should contact the plan administrator or employer sponsoring the plan to discuss a credit against future payments (or a refund in certain circumstances)
