Continuing Insurance: Medical, dental, vision, EAP, Health Care FSA
COBRA is a federal law that allows eligible employees to continue existing medical, dental, vision and EAP insurance after leaving City employment.
If you have a health care flexible spending account that hasn't been fully spent, you also may be able to continue it so you have additional time to incur and submit claims.
If you elect to continue coverage through COBRA, you'll pay 102% of the premium. Current rates are available on our RATES page.
