Post-Separation Benefits (COBRA)


Under federal law (COBRA), Colorado State University is required to notify you of your right to continue coverage under "The Plan", which includes group health, dental, and/or a health flexible spending reimbursement account, when the coverage would otherwise end because of specific qualifying events described below. This notice is intended to inform you of your rights and obligations under the continuation provisions of the law.

Federal Regulations do not require employers to offer continuation of coverage to Domestic Partners or to the “qualifying” dependents of the domestic partner. Colorado State University has elected to extend COBRA benefits to Domestic Partners and their “qualifying” dependents.

Please see the Summary Plan Description (page 15) for complete information.


Surviving Spouse Health Plan Benefits


If you should die while employed by the University, your eligible dependent(s) who were enrolled at the time of your death, may be eligible for coverage continuation based on your appointment type.
