AB528 Coverage

If you die while covered under the District’s health care plans as an employee or retiree, your surviving spouse and dependent children may continue their coverage under COBRA as explained previously, by paying the required premium. Once COBRA eligibility ends, your surviving spouse may be able to continue coverage through a special District program, AB528. Dependent children are not eligible for coverage under AB528. Your surviving spouse must contact the COBRA/AB528 Administrator to get information and coverage under the AB528 program.

Please Note:

  • There is no reinstatement of coverage after cancellation of COBRA/AB528 Coverage
  • You must adhere to the timeframes for enrolling in your coverage. You have 60 days to notify the Administrator, of your intent to enroll in the COBRA or AB528 coverage. If you miss this deadline, you will lose your right to enroll in benefits.
