MMC Benefits Handbook
Continuing Participation
You can continue coverage under Health Care Flexible Spending and Limited Purpose Heath Care Flexible Spending Accounts through COBRA for the remainder of the calendar year if you experience a COBRA qualifying event, register your event, if required, and enroll in COBRA within the legally allowable time frame.
If you continue participation through COBRA, you will make your contributions on an after-tax basis. Since the tax advantage of participating may no longer exist, you should consider talking to a professional tax advisor before you decide to continue participation under COBRA.
