Where Are My Payment Coupons For COBRA Coverage?
I am enrolled in COBRA coverage and was wondering when my payment coupons would be mailed for April.
Because COBRA is simply the continuation of the same coverage you had through a previous employer, you would need to contact the COBRA Administrator at your previous employer to find out about your payment coupons. Typically, the COBRA Administrator is in the HR department.
Other Methods Of Payment
COBRA Premiums are made to the plan administrator. Find out which methods of payment are taken by checking the paperwork you received from the employer or their third-party.
COBRA Premiums Are Expensive
When you pay for COBRA continuation, the cost may be unaffordable. The reason is that you are paying the full health insurance premium, including the portion your employer paying and in many cases a 2% administration fee for a third-party administrator.
COBRA Third-Party Administrators
Your COBRA plan may be managed by a third-party administrator. Many employers work with the following:
- ADP COBRA
- BASIC COBRA
- BAS' COBRA Control Services
- BenefitConnect EHR
- BenefitSolver COBRA
- Burnham & Flower
- BRI COBRA (Benefits Resource)
- bswift COBRA
- COBRAPoint Benaissance
- Employee Benefits Corp (EBC)
- Lifetime Benefit Solutions
- Navia Benefit Solutions
- Optum Financial
- Paycom COBRA
- Total Administrative Service Corporation (TASC)
- WageWorks / Conexis
- WEX (formerly Discovery Benefits)
If you are unsure who your plan administrator is, reach out to the human resources department of the company that provided the health insurance you had.
