Georgia Tech health and wellness benefits are provided through a variety of vendors and are subject to different outcomes if they are discontinued. We recommended carefully reviewing each benefit below to understand your options if your Georgia Tech benefits end, due to a termination (voluntary or involuntary) or a “lapsed transfer” to a different University System of Georgia (USG) Institution.
Your health insurance will continue through the end of the month in which you separate from Georgia Tech. You may continue your coverage under COBRA (The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act).
