You have the same right to change coverage as active employees. Therefore, if you have an event such as a birth or marriage that would have allowed you to change your coverage as an active employee, you can make the same change as a COBRA participant. You can also make coverage changes or add dependents during any open enrollment period. If this occurs, you will be provided rates, benefit summaries, and enrollment forms. While your dependents may be added, they will not be a Qualified Beneficiary.
