The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985 (COBRA), is a Federal law that requires employers to offer you and your dependents the opportunity to temporarily continue your medical, dental, vision, and/or Health Care FSA coverage at your own expense after your District-sponsored coverage ends. Every employee has the right to choose continuation of coverage if the employee loses his/her health coverage due to a reduction in hours, resignation or termination of employment (for reasons other than gross misconduct on the part of the employee).
To continue coverage under COBRA, you must pay a monthly premium. The actual premium amount is determined annually and will not exceed 102% of the premium paid by the District for employees and/or dependents in a comparable status.
