Policy Provisions
1.

Continuation of Insurance Benefits--COBRA


Upon termination of employment and certain other qualifying events, employees and/or their dependents may be eligible for a temporary continuation of the health insurance. If an employment changes -- from a status with health care benefits to a status not eligible for benefits -- the employee may be able to continue the health care (medical) coverage at their own cost under a federal provision known as COBRA (Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act). Solely the former employee must pay the full cost of the monthly premium plus an administrative charge. For complete details, the employee should contact the Director of Human Resources.

 

At the time of employment termination of an employee, a COBRA Notice/COBRA Continuation Election Form will be mailed, certified, to the last known home address by the Director of Human Resources.
