When Coverage Ends
Continuing Coverage with COBRA
When coverage ends, you and your covered dependents may be eligible to continue your existing benefits under the COBRA Continuation Program or convert your medical coverage to an individual policy. Please see "Conversion to an Individual Medical Policy" for more information on continuing coverage that has ended.
Your health care coverage will continue until the end of the month in which:
  • you terminate your employment for any reason, including retirement (see "I Retire" in the What If… section);
  • you are no longer in a Bargaining Unit position;
  • you fail to pay your share of the cost of coverage. If you are billed monthly in advance, you will have no coverage for any month in which you fail to pay your share of the coverage cost; or
  • the plan terminates.
