COBRA Benefits Services

{COBRA is coverage, plain and simple.
Yes, we said simple. }

Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) Services


We know COBRA as well as anyone. And for the past 30 years, we’ve been making it easier for companies like yours to make sense of it. We’ve also been making it simpler for the people who depend on it.

More About COBRA Services from WageWorks


When you work with WageWorks, you get:

Case Management – Clear communications, detailed audit trails, self-service tools and comprehensive reporting.

Transition Assistance – Options for coverage, not just COBRA continuation.

Payment Options – Online ACH or check payments are both accepted.

ACA Reporting – The details you need for Minimum Essential Coverage reporting.

The last thing you need is more things to manage.

Our goal is to make COBRA administration hassle-free. So we offer an easy-to-use employer portal, where you can quickly find what you need. And our COBRA benefits programs can always be adapted to your policies, no matter how complex.

Making it easier for your people makes it easier on you.

WageWorks wants to limit the number of questions that come your way, so we work to reduce participant concerns and potential confusion. In fact, we guarantee 90 percent of COBRA calls are taken care of within 24 hours - and our average response time is less than 30 seconds.


With our mobile-friendly account access, you can:

  • Make COBRA elections
  • Access FAQs and other resources

Cost doesn’t have to be a concern.

Affordable healthcare options keep eligible employees covered without them feeling buried. So we partner with HealthCompare to clear up any confusion and make sure coverage is easily accessible. This partnership also provides guidance from licensed benefits advisors and transition assistance for your team, so you’ll get the right plan for your company and cost-effective choices for your people. 

One more thing. And by that, we mean one, total solution. 

If you’re working with different vendors to offer FSAs, HSAs, Commuter programs, COBRA packages and other benefits employees want and need, any savings you’re seeing could be outweighed by the time you’re investing. When you work with WageWorks, your consumer-directed benefits fall under one program. One plan to manage. One number to call. It’s a simple, connected experience for employees and an integrated, easy-to-manage solution for you.
