If you leave State service or experience a reduction in hours that makes you ineligible for State health insurance, a COBRA packet will be sent to your home with enrollment instructions and an election form. (Please note that you may not receive your COBRA election notice until several weeks after your COBRA qualifying event.)
You have 60 days from the date the COBRA election notice is mailed to make a COBRA election. Your active coverage ID card will remain the same if you elect COBRA coverage.
If a dependent is turning 26 and elects COBRA coverage, they need to provide their SSN on the enrollment form provided by UnitedHealthcare (UHC) to receive their own coverage ID.
