The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) of 1986 is a federal law that allows individuals to continue medical, dental, vision or Health Care FSA coverage on an individual basis when they are no longer eligible for coverage under the employer's group plan.
Upon loss of coverage, eligible individuals will receive written notification of their right to COBRA continuation coverage along with instructions for enrolling in the plans. If an individual elects to continue coverage and fails to make premium payments within a specified time frame, coverage will be terminated.
This page is intended to provide employees and their spouses with a summary of their rights and obligations under the continuation of coverage provisions of the law.
