Subsidized COBRA Rate

Medical Coverage at a Special Subsidized COBRA Rate

COBRA (Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act) allows you and/or a dependent covered under medical, dental, vision and/or health care Flexible Spending Accounts benefits to continue coverage when it is lost due to your retirement. Coverage may be purchased for any or all persons on your policy at the time of your retirement.

For those interested in continuing to receive medical coverage for themselves and eligible dependents under one of the Wright State medical plans (i.e. AAUP PPO 90/10 Plan, PPO 90/10 Plan, AAUP PPO 80/20 Plan, PPO 80/20 Plan, AAUP HDHP Plan or HDHP Plan)*, the university will provide a special subsidized COBRA rate that will cover 50% of the COBRA rates for up to three years.

Your current WSU healthcare coverage will terminate on your retirement date.  COBRA coverage, if elected, will be reinstated to the first day of your retirement once the COBRA administrator, UMR, has received your subsidized payment.

For more information about COBRA benefits, please contact HR.
