Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA)

Premium Payment

Individuals electing COBRA coverage have 45 days from the date coverage is elected to pay currently due premiums.

The State does not contribute to the premium for COBRA coverage. The cost of COBRA coverage is the entire premium plus a 2 percent administrative fee. See the CMS COBRA Information and Cost link below for the cost of COBRA coverage. Contact University Payroll and Benefits or CMS for assistance with cost information.

Central Management Services (CMS) mails monthly billing statements to the employee's home address on or about the fifth of each month. Bills for the current month are due by the twenty-fifth of that month and are paid to CMS.

Failure to pay the premium by the due date will result in termination of coverage retroactive to the last date of the month in which premiums were paid.
