COBRA

Overview


COBRA stands for the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act. It's a federal law that was passed in 1986 that helps qualified beneficiaries - like you and your covered dependents - to continue the same health care coverage you had the day before you experience your qualifying event. Please review the Snohomish County COBRA FAQ to learn more about COBRA. 

Note: If you experience a divorce, legal separation of the employee and spouse, or a dependent child’s losing eligibility for coverage as a dependent child, you must notify Human Resources within 60 days after the qualifying event occurs.
