Extension of Maximum COBRA Coverage Period | JRW Associates, Inc., a Raleigh Benefit Advisory Firm

The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985 (COBRA) requires employers to offer covered employees who lose their health benefits due to a qualifying event to continue group health benefits for a limited time at the employee’s own cost.  The length of the COBRA coverage period depends on the qualifying event and is usually 18 or 36 months.  However, the COBRA coverage period may be extended under five circumstances.
