Former employees of SHBP Employing Entities and their covered dependents may continue their SHBP coverage for a minimum of eighteen (18) months in accordance with the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985 (COBRA).
When will I receive my COBRA election packet?
COBRA election packets are mailed 7 to 10 days after your SHBP coverage ends. For example, if your employer reports your Last Date of Deduction as August 5th, your SHBP coverage ends September 30th and your COBRA package will be mailed to the address on file in the SHBP Enrollment Portal no later than October 10th.
How much is COBRA?
SHBP charges COBRA participants the entire costs of coverage or 102% of the costs of coverage (i.e., unsubsidized), meaning SHBP makes no contribution to offset the premium and therefore it is substantially higher. For COBRA premiums, please click here.
