COBRA (Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act)

In compliance with the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA), Saint Mary’s allows continuation of group medical insurance for up to 18 months in the following situations:

  • An employee terminates for any reason.
  • An employee retires.
  • An employee's number of work hours is reduced to a level ineligible for benefits.

COBRA also permits dependents of Saint Mary’s employees to be insured when they would otherwise lose coverage. Typically this occurs when the age cap is reached. Spouses may elect COBRA in the event of a divorce or if the employee dies.
