Continuation of Group Coverage (COBRA)

If you or your dependents lose eligibility for coverage, UT System will offer you the option to continue coverage for the following plans:

  • Medical
  • Dental
  • Vision
  • In some cases, Flexible Spending Accounts 

You will automatically receive this enrollment package at the address listed in myHR within 14 days of losing eligibility for coverage.

You are responsible for the full premium for elected COBRA coverages plus a 2% administrative fee. 

If you lose eligibility for coverage and are already enrolled in the following plans, you may be able to access a conversion benefit provided as part of these plans:

  • Dearborn National Basic Life Insurance 
  • Dearborn National Voluntary Group Term Life Insurance 
  • Dearborn National Long Term Disability

To enroll you must call myHR at 713-745-6947 to receive required forms and send to the insurance companies within 31 days of the end of the month in which your benefits-eligibility status changes or terminates. 

You are responsible for the full premium for converted coverages. See COBRA Rates.
