10.7  Continuation of Benefits

(Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985)

If your employment with the university is terminated for any reason other than as a result of gross misconduct while you are covered by the university's medical insurance plan, or if you become a part-time employee and are no longer eligible for coverage under the medical insurance plan, you may continue your coverage at your own expense for up to eighteen months or until you are covered by another plan, whichever comes first, under the provisions of the federal Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985 (COBRA). Your covered dependents may also be eligible for COBRA coverage under certain circumstances. The university's COBRA administrator will be notified by Human Resources of the termination of your employment. Detailed information about the specific provisions of COBRA coverage is available from the benefits section of Human Resources.
