I received a removal from Federal Service a few months ago. My SF-50 says I am eligible for TCC, but it has been months and nobody believes they are the person responsible for ensuring I can keep it.

My service's HR Rep says there is a BCBS rep at the agency who takes care of it.
That representative says it goes through my service representative.
The service representative then said I should just contact BCBS on my own.
BCBS says the agency must contact them and I cannot do it.

It has been well over 60 days at this point and my coverage with no payments has continued. I am getting very concerned that I will be stuck with a bill for everything that has gone through after the 31 or 60 day mark. I am also very concerned that I missed my chance to continue coverage because everyone says someone else must do it. Am I just totally screwed at this point? Thanks

HR at the Agency who removed you is responsible for providing you with information on TCC. Contact them and ask for a Supervisor. Make sure you state you were not provided with information on Temporary Continuation of Coverage, as required by law. Keep going up the HR Supervisory chain until you find someone who knows what they are doing. From OPM's site: https://www.opm.gov/heal...f-coverage/#url=separate
"If you lose your FEHB coverage because you leave your Federal job, you are eligible for TCC unless your separation is involuntary due to gross misconduct. Otherwise, the reasons for your separation don't matter.
Your Human Resources Office must notify you within 61 days after your regular FEHB enrollment terminates of your opportunity to enroll under TCC (temporary continuation of coverage). Generally, you have 60 days after getting the notice or 60 days after separation, whichever is later, to enroll under TCC."
