COBRA Information

  • COBRA is a federal program that allows employees and their dependents who lose their insurance coverage to continue that coverage for up to 36 months at the full cost of the plan, plus a 2% administrative fee. COBRA is the same coverage available to active employees, and deductibles and plan maximums do not reset upon COBRA enrollment. 

    Certificated and Management employees will receive information regarding COBRA, including the election form, from Alvord USD via mail. Classified employees will receive infomation regarding COBRA, including the election form, from SISC via mail. Individuals wishing to enroll in COBRA must return the election form and payment to the apprproate body by the deadline listed on their election form. Payment is required monthly and must be made via check. Members may make changes to their Cobra enrollment upon a qualifying event or during Open Enrollment.

    Individuals who are in need of coverage may also wish to explore options available to them via Covered California. For additional information, please visit the "Affordable Care Act" page of this website.
