My COBRA Plan Is With Aetna, Where Do I Start?

I was recently furloughed from my job and don’t expect to come back to work for at least 3 months. I’m supposed to be able to use my Aetna insurance during this time. I don’t know where to begin. Help?

To begin your Aetna COBRA continuation plan, you will need to respond to your employer’s notification letter that you wish to continue your health insurance. Your employer’s HR Department or designated third-party administrator’s notice will include details on how to pay your premium, the costs of the plan and contact information if there are any questions.
