measuring your hours during the open enrollment measurement period.
If you terminate state employment, you are covered through the last day of the month following
termination. Once you have terminated state employment, you can continue health, dental and
vision coverage through COBRA for up to 18 months if you were enrolled in those plans at the
time of termination.
If you are determined to be ineligible during a measurement period, coverage will end at the end
of the 12-month period. You will be eligible to continue coverage through COBRA. For additional
information about the COBRA program, contact your Agency Benefits Administrator in the
Bureau of Human Resources.
