How Do I Start COBRA Insurance with Humana?
After my job ended, my former employer sent me a letter about starting COBRA with Humana which was my work health insurance. How does that work?
After your qualifying event that made you lose work insurance coverage, your employer will send you a notice of your right to continue your plan. The notice will contain information on how to enroll in your Humana health plan, what the costs are and contact information if you have plan questions. The COBRA law specifies that you have 60 days to enroll in the coverage after you receive the notice.
Where’s My COBRA Notice?
The employer should send you the election notice within 45 days of the qualifying event or when the insurance ended. This notification should come to you by postal mail. If you did not receive your paperwork, check with the Human Resources department from who the insurance is through and request a new form.
