The continuation coverage offered is the same as provided to other plan participants. You can only continue the coverages you had the day before your qualifying event.
You and your eligible dependents may elect the following coverages:
Medical and prescription drug only; or
Medical, prescription drug, dental and vision coverage.
Substitute teachers and Part-Time Option 2 employees may only elect medical and prescription drug coverage.
Continuation coverage is not available for long-term disability or life, accidental death and dismemberment or survivor benefits. Once you choose the types of coverage you want, it cannot be changed. If you elect to continue medical and prescription drug coverage only, you can only add dental and vision coverage (or drop it) at the time of open enrollment. You can change between the medical options available to you during the annual open enrollment period.
