How Do I Cancel My COBRA Coverage?

I have to wait 60 days for my new work insurance to start. When that happens, how to I cancel my existing COBRA continuation?

How To Cancel COBRA Coverage

To cancel your COBRA plan you will need to notify your previous employer or the plan administrator in writing, requesting to terminate the insurance.

After you stop your COBRA insurance, your former employer should send you a letter affirming termination of that health insurance. You should then receive a certificate of credible coverage for the length of time you were on the plan.

Is It Too Expensive?

When you keep the same employer health insurance, you pay the entire premium. Many people find plan continuation too costly to keep and will want to look for an alternative to COBRA to remain covered.
