2022 Group Health Insurance Program Information

COBRA

The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) allows participants and their eligible dependents covered under the State Group Health Program to continue or convert their health insurance coverage in the event they lose eligibility under the program.  Eligibility can be lost due to termination of employment, layoff, divorce, a dependent attaining age 26 and not being disabled, or death. 

COBRA requires that employees and their eligible dependents who lose coverage eligibility for one of these reasons be offered the opportunity to temporarily extend their coverage under the program for a maximum of 18 months due to termination or up to 36 months due to divorce, a dependent attaining age 26 and not being disabled, layoff or death.  Contact ETF if you have questions related to eligibility for COBRA and the duration of COBRA coverage.
