What are my benefits under Federal COBRA and Cal-COBRA?

  • You have the same benefits as other employees in the same health plan.
  • If other employees have open enrollment periods, when they can change from one plan to another, you can too.
  • If the employer changes the employees from one health plan to another, you change plans too.
  • You have no restrictions because of pre-existing conditions.
  • If the group benefit includes specialized plans, such as dental or vision plans, they must be offered to you too under Federal COBRA; however, if you change from Federal COBRA to Cal-COBRA, these specialized plans do not have to be offered to you.  DMHC FAQ’s  *

  1. I will be retiring from work for a large company headquartered in California. My state of residence is Massachusetts.

    I understand that Federal COBRA will apply for the first 18 months of health insurance coverage. However, does my California employer then have to allow me to continue coverage (under Cal-Cobra) for an additional 18 months of coverage?
