PA Mini-COBRA Extension

Governor Rendell has signed legislation that extends Pennsylvania Mini-COBRA coverage for up to 15 months for certain individuals.

• Individuals who experienced a qualifying event on or before May 31, 2010 are entitled to PA Mini-COBRA coverage for a total of 15 months.
• PA Mini-COBRA participants whose coverage terminated before July 9, 2010 have the right to reinstate their Mini-COBRA coverage for an additional 6 months.

Individuals who experience a qualifying event on or after June 1, 2010 are entitled to PA Mini-COBRA coverage for up to nine months. These individuals are not entitled to the premium subsidy.

Federal COBRA subsidies under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) are no longer available. Therefore, subsidies are no longer available for employees who were involuntarily terminated on or after June 1, 2010 for PA Mini-COBRA.

Pennsylvania Mini-COBRA applies only to insured group health plans with less than 20 employees.
