COBRA refers to the Consolidated Omnibus Benefits Reconciliation Act and it grants the right of a terminated employee, or an employee who has moved to part-time, to remain covered under their employer’s company health plan.

When employees enroll in COBRA, they are continuing the same coverage as their group plan, including:

  • Rules for filing claims and appealing denied claims
  • Right to change coverage options during open enrollment
