Federal law (COBRA) gives certain individuals the right to continue Plan benefits at their own expense when those benefits would otherwise terminate because of one or another of the reasons listed in the law.

The employer will notify UnitedHealthcare if an employee ceases to render the “Requisite Amount of Compensated Service.” However, employees must notify the Plan administrator within 60 days after a divorce occurs or a child no longer meets the definition of a dependent. Please complete the Divorced Spouse or Dependent Not Eligible COBRA Enrollment Form. Opens in a new window
