General Information

The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985 (COBRA) requires that Iowa State University allow covered Employees, and their eligible Dependents, the opportunity to temporarily extend their medical flexible spending account, group health, dental, and vision plans when the benefits would otherwise end due to certain qualifying events. Employees, or eligible Dependents, are responsible for the premiums if they elect to continue any of the coverage. Continuation for COBRA qualified employees and/or dependents shall be identical to the employee's health, dental, and vision plan under which they were covered at the time coverage was lost. ISU Plan coverage ends at the end of the month you resign or experience a qualifying event.
