How Do I Start COBRA With Highmark Insurance?

I’m about to retire and am eligible for COBRA on my work’s Highmark Insurance plan. What do I need to get started?

Your employer or their third-party administrator will notify you of your right to continue your health plan with Highmark. The paperwork they will send will provide you with your monthly costs and where to make payments.
