The Public Health Service Act (PHSA) and the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1986 (COBRA) require that most employers sponsoring group health plans offer employees and their families the opportunity for a temporary extension of health coverage (called “continuation coverage”) at group rates in certain instances where coverage under the plan would otherwise end (called “qualifying events”).  

This site includes resources and information regarding eligibility, enrollment, and opportunities for COBRA continuation coverage for City of Virginia Beach and Virginia Beach City Public Schools employees and dependents.​​
