Do I need new ID cards?
No. If you get coverage through the 100% COBRA subsidy, you do NOT need to request a new ID card. Use your current ID cards!
What should I do if I made an April payment but qualify for the 100% FREE COBRA?
Super Saver payments will automatically be refunded within 45-90 days of April 1. If you enroll and qualify for free COBRA, your COBRA payments will be automatically refunded within 60 days from the date payment was made. Self-payments will be refunded within 45-90 days of completing the COBRA enrollment forms. You do NOT need to call to start the refund process—it will happen automatically.
What else should I know?
The 100% subsidized COBRA is provided by your health fund and paid for by the Federal Government – you don’t pay anything!
