    What happens if I leave? 

    If your last day worked is on or before the 15th, your coverage ends at midnight on the 15th.  If your last day worked is the 16th or later, your coverage ends at midnight on the last day of the month.

    Under the provisions of the Consolidated Omnibus Reconciliation Act of 1985, or COBRA, you and your covered family members may choose to continue medical coverage under the City's medical plan after your coverage is scheduled to end. You have 60 days from the date of your COBRA election notice to elect continued coverage. If you do not respond within the 60 days, your rights to continue coverage end.

    Medical coverage eligibility in retirement is based on date of hire and years of service. To find out if you are eligible, refer to Chapter 4, “Benefits” of the Employment Policies & Procedures Manual.
