COBRA Coverage Costs
If you choose to continue coverage under COBRA, you will generally pay the full cost for yourself and/or your qualified beneficiaries, plus a 2% administrative fee. If COBRA coverage is extended because of a disability, the rates for coverage during the additional 11 months are 150% of the full cost.
If a second qualifying event occurs during the initial 18-month period of COBRA coverage, the 102% rate applies to you and your qualified beneficiaries for the full 36 months of COBRA coverage, even if you or one of your covered dependents becomes disabled. However, if a second qualifying event occurs during an extended disability coverage period, then the rates of coverage will continue at the higher disability coverage rates explained above.
