If a qualified beneficiary loses coverage under the Navajo Nation Employee Benefit Plan due to a qualifying event, he/she may elect to continue coverage under the Plan in accordance with the COBRA requirements upon timely election and payment of monthly contribuations as specified. A qualified beneficiary must elect coverage within the sixty (60) day period beginning on the later of the date of the qualifying event, or the date he/she was notified of the right to continue coverage.
COBRA is the continuation of benefits that applies to medical, prescription drug, dental and vision coverage only. This section does not apply to coverage for loss of life, or for loss of income due to disability (short-term disability benefits).
