How Do I Get Enrolled In Cigna COBRA?
I was terminated a month ago and need to get started with COBRA from Cigna. Where do I begin?
COBRA is a federal law that allows you to continue on your work health insurance after it would end. Within 45 days of the insurance ending, the employer sponsoring the health plan will notify you of your right to elect COBRA as your temporary health plan until you establish new major medical coverage. The notification will include your monthly premium costs, your timeline to enroll by and contact information should you have questions about the plan. It will be the same Cigna plan you had while working.
