How Do You Create A COBRA Insurance Account?

I just signed up for COBRA through work. How do I start my account to manage my plan and pay premiums?

Depending on who your COBRA plan administrator is, they may have a website for you to manage your COBRA enrollment and premium payment.

In your COBRA packet of information, there will be instructions on which website to go to for registering a new user account.

This will be the website you log into to manage your COBRA plan.

Where’s My COBRA Packet Of Information?

Please Note: COBRA is a continuation of the former employer-based health insurance you had or have been on. These plans are managed by the company that provides the health coverage or their third-party administrator.

Administration Fees

When a company uses a third-party administrator (TPA) for managing COBRA, by law, that TPA may apply a 2% administration fee on the premium.
