COBRA

Retirees or their dependents covered by the SHBP or SEHBP who lose coverage may be able to continue health benefits coverage under COBRA. COBRA is not a separate health program; it is a continuation of SHBP or SEHBP coverage under the federal law. See the COBRA – Continuation of Health Benefits Fact Sheet to learn more. The length of COBRA coverage depends on the COBRA “qualifying event,” (the reason you are offered coverage).

Qualifying Events
  • Divorce or end of partnership;
  • Dependent child turns age 26;
  • or Death of the employee or retiree.

See the COBRA – Continuation of Health Benefits Fact Sheet to learn more.
