COBRA-Retiree

Q. 
Who is eligible for COBRA?
A. 
When an associate’s employment ends with Shaw, if they are a current participant of the Shaw Medical, Dental, and/or Vision Plans, they have the right to elect to continue coverage under COBRA.
Q. 
How will I be notified regarding Cobra/Retiree coverage?
A. 
Enrollment packets are mailed to the associate's mailing address from Optum and should be received within three (3) weeks of the termination date.  If the packet is not received, the participant should contact the COBRA/Retiree department at Optum (1-866-301-6681).
Q. 
Who is eligible for Retiree Other Than COBRA coverage?
A. 
Associates are eligible to retire on or after reaching age 62 if they have completed at least five years of company service. If the associate is an eligible Retiree and is not Medicare eligible, they may elect to continue Medical, Dental, and/or Vision coverage and are eligible to receive the Retiree premium rate until they are Medicare eligible. 

Covered spouses of a Retiree that is not yet eligible for Medicare would be considered eligible to receive the Retiree premium rate until they are Medicare eligible.
