Continue Coverage Through COBRA

The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) provides you and your dependents the right to continue medical, dental and vision coverage, and participation in the Health Care Flexible Spending Account if coverage for you or your dependents is lost as a result of a "qualifying event". If a qualifying event occurs, you and/or your dependents will be offered continuation of coverage for a specified length of time.

More detailed information about COBRA is available in the online Health and Welfare Summary Plan Description (SPD).
