COBRA Administration

Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) administration for your accounts can be time consuming and confusing. The law requires certain procedures and forms. BlueCross can help them navigate through the hassle! We'll save time, money and resources.

Health provisions in COBRA give certain people the right to continue health coverage temporarily at group rates. This includes former employees, retirees, spouses, former spouses and dependent children. Did your accounts have 20 or more employees on more than half of their typical working days during the previous working year? If so, then they must comply with COBRA.

When we handle your accounts' COBRA programs,your accounts and their employees can remain focused while we:

  • Enroll and terminate participants as necessary.
  • Cycle claims for participants who are late with their premium payments. This means your accounts won't have to pay members' claims unnecessarily.
  • Keep track of changing federal guidelines.
  • Research legal questions.
  • Manage special-case circumstances and update your accounts on pending legal matters.
