Employee Benefits: Continuation of Health Insurance (COBRA)

The "Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985" (COBRA) is a federal law that requires the State of Texas to offer employees and dependents covered under the Group Benefits Plan (GBP) the opportunity to temporarily extend their health and dental coverage at the group rates. Continuation coverage is available only when qualifying events cause coverage under the GBP to end. Coverage under COBRA is limited to the health and dental coverage in effect at the time of the qualifying event.
