Are my prescriptions covered under COBRA?

Yes, COBRA Covers Pharmacy Prescriptions, If You Had That Coverage Previously

Yes. The COBRA law allows you and your dependents to continue on the exact same coverage that you had with the employer’s group health plan. Nothing changes in regards to your medication. The prescription coverage you had previously is the same during COBRA continuing coverage.

Your Insurance Card While On COBRA

If you elect COBRA Insurance from your previous employer, everything stays the same. Keep your insurance plan ID card, you’ll continue to use it.

What Other Benefits Continue On COBRA?

Group health plans may include dental and vision insurance, prescription plans and Health Savings Accounts. When you elect to continue on the employer-sponsored medical insurance, you keep everything. If you had it before, dental and vision are covered by COBRA.
