Portability of Medical Insurance Coverage
Some PEBB sponsored group medical insurance plans allow portability. An eligible individual enrolled in one of these medical plans may continue insurance coverage under the plan’s portability provisions before, during, or at the end of the period that medical insurance coverage is provided under COBRA, if:
They were continuously covered for 180 days or more under one or more PEBB sponsored group medical insurance plans and they lost eligibility for group medical insurance coverage;
They are not covered by another group medical insurance plan, Medicare, or TriCare;
They enroll in a continued medical insurance plan under the portability provisions within 63 days after termination of the group medical insurance coverage; and
They comply with all requirements of the applicable insurance carrier for continuation of medical insurance coverage under the carrier’s portability plan provisions.
