When a person elects to take COBRA, is the check made out to your former employer or the insurance company?

I am starting a new job and will not have benefits until January 26. I have to pay COBRA for health benefits that being on December 1 but the office manager did not tell me whom to make out the check to? Is it made out to my former employer or the insurance company?
