ody Q: How can I get a copy of my Certificate of Coverage from COBRA listing mine and my dependents’ prior coverage?
A: COBRA is not an insurance company.
COBRA is a federal law that requires employers with 20 or more employees to offer the continuation of the same group health care coverage after you’ve voluntarily or involuntarily left your job, or have had your work hours reduced.
Because COBRA is simply the continuation of the same coverage you had through a previous employer, you would need to contact the carrier you’ve had through your employer’s group health plan. You also would have had to elect for COBRA, and pay the full premium payments.
