If an employer reduces hours for part or all of their workforce in response to the COVID-19 National Emergency can the company continue to cover those employees?
For health plan products: Through May 31, 2020, UnitedHealthcare is temporarily relaxing its requirement that employees be actively working to be eligible for coverage and will allow you to cover your reduced hour employees, as long as you pay the monthly premium. Please note that you must offer this coverage on a uniform, non-discriminatory basis.
For example, we have a pediatric dental office that the state is requiring to shut down except in case of emergency. They are temporarily laying people off for the next 30 days. This allows the office to continue coverage on employees for this time without them working full time.
