A Federal law known as COBRA (the Consolidated Omnibus Reconciliation Act of 1985, as amended) requires the County of Los Angeles to offer employees and their families the opportunity for a temporary extension of health benefits at group rates plus an administrative charge, in certain instances where coverage under the Plan would otherwise end.  The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, provides COBRA premium assistance benefits to certain employees who are involuntarily terminated from employment between September 1, 2008 and December 31, 2009, and to those employees’ families.  At the time you first become covered under a County health plan, you should receive a notice that will explain your rights and obligations under COBRA as well as a notice explaining your rights and obligations under California law.
