COBRA Eligibility Notification (Continuing of Health, Dental, and Vision Insurance coverage)

Displaced employees will receive a COBRA Eligibility Notification Form.  This is not an enrollment form, but a notification regarding your eligibility to enroll should you elect to continue your Health, Dental, and Vision Insurance coverage through the State of Ohio.  This form should be completed whether or not you choose to continue coverage and submitted to your Personnel/Payroll Office no later than 30 days after your last day worked.  Upon receipt of a completed and signed eligibility form, an enrollment packet will be sent to you.  Please be advised, if you do not complete and submit this notification form indicating your preference to enroll in COBRA, and properly complete and submit enrollment materials timely, your Health, Dental, and Vision Insurance coverage will be terminated at the end of the month following the month in which you are separated.  For example, an employee separated June 1, 2011, who chose not to enroll in COBRA would have his/her coverage terminated July 31, 2011.  For more information regarding COBRA, please visit the DAS Web Site.
