What is COBRA?
COBRA stands for the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985 (COBRA). This act requires most employers with group health plans to offer employees the opportunity to continue temporarily their group health care coverage under their employer’s plan if their coverage otherwise would cease due to termination, layoff, or other changes in employment status (referred to as “qualifying events”).
Upon hire with Kennesaw State University, you will receive an INITIAL/GENERAL NOTICE OF CONTINUATION COVERAGE RIGHTS UNDER COBRA letter in the mail from ADP COBRA Services. This letter will notify you of your rights under COBRA should you or your dependent(s) lose coverage under the health plans due to loss or eligibility or termination of employment.
How to EnrollWhen you or your dependent(s) lose coverage under the plans, you will receive a COBRA packet in the mail from OneUSG Connect Benefits. This package will include all of the information you will need to make a decision regarding continuing your health coverages under COBRA and an enrollment form to make your COBRA enrollment elections. For questions, please contact OneUSG Connect Benefits at 1-844-587-4236 (844-5USGBEN).
