The Social Security Administration (SSA) processes COBRA and disability claims following
the same rules applicable to all disability claims. If the claimant requests we send
the determination notice directly to the health insurance company due to time constraints,
and there is a signed SSA-3288 in file with authorization, fax a copy of the determination
to the health insurance company.
Simultaneous COBRA and disability claims are forwarded to their servicing DDS office
using EDCS. The servicing DDS will review all documentation through eView. See DI11080.010A
for documents needed and DI 11080.010D for special onset circumstances.
