I had COBRA insurance last year for about 2 months. Can you please lookup and verify the months I had it and how much I paid for those months? I received a letter concerning a dental payment COBRA did not cover and need to validate.
As COBRA is the same employer-sponsored you had previously, you would need to contact the COBRA Plan Administrator. If you are unsure you that is, contact the HR Department at the business who provided the group health plan.
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. Additionally, COBRA insurance is available for separated spouses and retiring workers who are not yet eligible for Medicare.
Keep Your Information Up To Date
If you move or have am qualifying event that involves the immediate family, you need to keep your COBRA Plan Administrator up to date. Often times, large companies will use a third-party administrator (TPA) handle enrollment and billing, similar to how the HR department assisted in your previous plan. You should be able to call them to update your information. Often times you can make changes by logging into your COBRA account if that is offered.
Did Your Plan Include Dental & Vision Insurance
Not all of the time does COBRA cover dental and vision. If they were not part of the previous health insurance previously. If you need those benefits, 877-262-7241 call COBRAInsurance.com for enrollment details.
