COBRA Rights - Continuing Health Care Coverage

After your eligibility for group health care coverage ends, you may be able to purchase continued medical and dental coverage on an individual basis, for a period of time under the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985, (COBRA).


To continue coverage, you must complete a COBRA Election Form within 60 days after your group coverage terminates. The COBRA participant must pay the required monthly costs for the continuation of coverage. If you have any questions or need COBRA enrollment forms, contact the Office of Group Insurance, (800) 531-0597,
