Who Do I Send My COBRA Insurance Payments To?
Where do I send my COBRA Insurance payments? I need to pay my premium.
Your COBRA health insurance is a continuation of your previous employer plan. Previously, you may have paid for your work insurance with a payroll deduction. When on COBRA continuation, you’ll pay the premium out-of-pocket.
Traditionally, the former employer will process the monthly premium payments they receive by mail in the form of a check or money order, made payable to the employer.
Third-Party Administrators May Have Other Ways To Pay
Some employers will use a third-party administrator (TPA) to manage premium payments. Most TPAs will have an online account for you that will allow you to pay by credit or debit card.
Is There A Grace Period?
You have a 30-day grace period to pay your COBRA premium.
