When and how must payment for COBRA continuation coverage be made?

You will be notified by CDS Group Health on the process utilized to continue your health insurance program. After you make your first payment for continuation coverage, you will be required to make periodic payments for each subsequent coverage period.   The periodic payments can be made on a monthly basis.  Under the Plan, each of these periodic payments for continuation coverage is due on the 1st of the month for that coverage period.  If you make a periodic payment on or before the first day of the coverage period to which it applies, your coverage under the Plan will continue for that coverage period without any break.  The Plan will not send periodic notices of payments due for these coverage periods.
