U.S. Welfare Benefits, Severance Plan and Other Matters
SECTION 5.01 U.S. Welfare Plans. (a) No later than the Distribution, ALTISOURCE shall have in effect welfare benefit plans that provide an appropriate level of life insurance, health care, dental care, accidental death and dismemberment insurance, disability and other group welfare benefits (the “ALTISOURCE Welfare Plans”) for ALTISOURCE Employees employed in Luxembourg or such other foreign jurisdiction as may become applicable, who immediately prior to the date such ALTISOURCE Welfare Plans are established (the “Welfare Plan Transition Date”) are participants in the comparable Existing OCWEN Plans (the “OCWEN Welfare Plans”) (except where applicable laws in such foreign jurisdictions may require a different approach). OCWEN and ALTISOURCE agree that, to the extent reasonably practicable, the ALTISOURCE Welfare Plans shall provide to such ALTISOURCE Employees coverage that is substantially similar to the coverage that was provided to them under the corresponding OCWEN Welfare Plans immediately prior to the Welfare Plan Transition Date. ALTISOURCE shall, subject to approval by its third-party insurance providers, (A) waive all limitations as to preexisting conditions, exclusions and waiting periods and actively-at-work requirements with respect to participation and coverage requirements applicable to such ALTISOURCE Employees and their dependents under the ALTISOURCE Welfare Plans to the extent previously satisfied under the applicable corresponding OCWEN Welfare Plan immediately prior to the Welfare Plan Transition Date and (B) provide each such ALTISOURCE Employee and his or her eligible dependents with credit under ALTISOURCE Welfare Plans for any co-payments and deductibles paid under corresponding OCWEN Welfare Plans prior to the Welfare Plan Transition Date in the calendar year in which the Welfare Plan Transition Date occurs for purposes of satisfying any applicable deductible or out-of-pocket requirements under any ALTISOURCE Welfare Plans in which such ALTISOURCE Employees participate.
(b) ALTISOURCE shall retain, or shall cause the applicable other members of the ALTISOURCE Group or the applicable ALTISOURCE Welfare Plans to retain, responsibility for all claims for welfare benefits incurred prior to, from and after the Distribution under the OCWEN Welfare Plans and the ALTISOURCE Welfare Plans by ALTISOURCE Employees and their dependents and beneficiaries.
SECTION 5.02 COBRA and HIPAA. ALTISOURCE shall retain all liabilities and obligations to ALTISOURCE Employees and their eligible dependents, in respect of health insurance under the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985, as amended (“COBRA”), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”) and applicable state law.
