How do I Qualify for COBRA?

There are seven different “qualifying events” that trigger COBRA:

  • Termination of a covered employee’s employment (other than for gross misconduct)
  • A reduction of a covered employee’s hours of work causing a loss of coverage
  • The covered employee’s death
  • A divorce or legal separation from the covered employee
  • A dependent child of the covered employee ceases to be a dependent under the terms of the plan
  • The covered employee becomes entitled to Medicare
  • An employer bankruptcy (retiree plans only)

Is COBRA Right for Me?

COBRA costs the total amount of the health plan plus a 2% service fee…. for example if you previously paid $250 every 2 weeks and your employer contributed $400 every 2 weeks for your health plan THEN YOUR total cost would be $1300 monthly plus a $26 monthly service fee for a total of $1326.00 monthly..

Cobra insurance is on average 70% higher than what is found on the private market. You will pay 102% of the premium with Cobra Insurance. If you were not enrolled in a dental or vision plan with your employer than you cannot enroll in those plans under Cobra.
