Employer-sponsored group plans are offered to eligible employees and their dependents.
This health policy is selected and purchased by the employer.
BUT… WHAT HAPPENS IF YOUR EMPLOYMENT ENDS?
- You may qualify for a Special Enrollment Period if you or anyone in your household lost qualifying health coverage in the past 60 days OR expects to lose coverage in the next 60 days.
- COBRA (Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act) is a federal law that allows you to temporarily keep health coverage if your employment ends, you lose coverage as a dependent of the covered employee, or another qualifying event. When you choose COBRA coverage, you pay 100% of the premiums —including the share the employer used to pay— plus a small administrative fee.
