The State of California passed legislation that affects continuation coverage in California.
AB 1401 was signed into law in 2002 and affects qualified beneficiaries in the federal Cal-COBRA program. Enrollees in the federal COBRA program who: started federal COBRA coverage on or after January 1, 2003; have less than 36 months of COBRA coverage; have exhausted the entire federal COBRA coverage period available to them; and are not eligible for other group medical coverage or entitled to Medicare, may be eligible to purchase additional continuation coverage under Cal-COBRA per California State law.
If you think you may be eligible for this benefit, please contact MHN via your current access number. If you do not have this information, please contact your former employer to obtain it, or download and mail in the Cal-COBRA Enrollment Request form to the following address:
