A law known as COBRA allows you and/or your dependents to self-pay for continued coverage under a set of defined "Qualifying Events." Participants must apply and make monthly self-payments in strict compliance with the rules in order to be covered under the COBRA provision.
You and/or your dependents can make COBRA self-payments for up to 18 months if your coverage terminates due to one of the following Qualifying Events:
* COBRA can be extended to 29 months if the covered person is disabled prior to or in the first 60 days of COBRA coverage.
|Medical/ Dental/ Vision:||$1,052.00||$1,491.00|
The Short-Hours Self-Payments option allows active employees who are currently covered under the Plan to continue their coverage even if they do not meet the normal hours-worked requirement for a specific month.If you do not have 125 hours in a particular eligibility month, and your previous hours are not enough to satisfy the Rollback Rule, you can make a short hours self-payment to continue your eligibility for coverage. The amount of your payment is determined by subtracting your credited hours in the eligibility month from 160 hours, and multiplying the difference by the current employer contribution rate. You can make up to 6 consecutive monthly self-payments after that, you must re-establish your eligibility based on credited hours worked, or continue coverage via COBRA.
