Benefits continued past COBRA cut-off

Tacoma, WA |

After leaving my company a couple of years ago, I used my 18 months of COBRA. I received notice that my coverage was ending and I paid my final premium, however the insurance company continued to pay my bills. If this gets discovered, am I at fault and what would the penalty be? Or is it just too bad for the insurance company that they continued my coverage?

  1. If they discover their error they could come after you for reimbursement. Probably not any penalty. Unlikely anyting criminal unless they can prove you knew you were not covered and continued to submit bills for payment. Most likely they would be happy to get any reimbursement IF they pursue it at all.
