COBRA

Continuation of Health Coverage (COBRA)

The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) gives workers and their families who lose their health benefits the right to choose to continue group health benefits provided by their group health plan for limited periods of time under certain circumstances such as voluntary or involuntary job loss, reduction in the hours worked, transition between jobs, death, divorce, and other life events.

Qualified individuals may be required to pay the entire premium for coverage up to 102 percent of the cost to the plan.

Cobra Control Services LLC, a subsidiary of Benefits Allocation System, is the third party billing processor acting on behalf of Ursinus College.
