COBRA INFORMATION

The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) is a Federal law that gives employees and their covered families who lose their health benefits the right to choose to continue group health benefits provided by their group health plan for limited periods of time under certain circumstances such as voluntary or involuntary job loss, reduction in the hours worked, transition between jobs, death, divorce, and other life events. The cost to continue your coverage through COBRA is 102% of the full cost of the Plan (employee and employer share plus a two percent administrative fee).

When your group health insurance has been impacted by a change in your job status or qualifying event, the Qualified Beneficiary (you or a covered family member) has a period of 60 days in which they can apply for COBRA benefits. During that time they can to decide to continue with Marquette's group health insurance plan, and through WEX to keep it intact. Once COBRA is elected, the Qualified Beneficiary is required to pay for the full insurance premium. By making the premiums for the health insurance, the COBRA participant will be able to continue with the coverage that was in place through Marquette University. COBRA coverage will be identical to the plan you had in place with Marquette. The length of time you can continue coverage through COBRA depends on the qualifying event that led to needing the benefit, ranging from 18 months to 36 months.

Questions regarding COBRA enrollment should be made to WEX: 1-866-451-3399 or the WEX website.
