Check Your COBRA Eligibility
COBRA is a federal law. Not a company.
The U.S. Department of Labor oversees the federal COBRA law. The first requirement is that employers with 20 or more employees must make their health plan available if they would lose their insurance plan due to a qualifying event. This is known as COBRA continuation coverage.
There are eligibility conditions to meet before you apply. Take the COBRA eligibility survey to find out if you qualify to continue your most recent work health insurance after the employer stops paying for it.
Qualifying Events For Employees In The Workplace
These events apply to the covered individual who holds employer-sponsored health insurance coverage. These events allow you to stay covered for up to 18 months.
Qualifying Events For Spouses and Dependent Children
These events apply to qualified beneficiaries when there is a relationship change between the insurance policy dependents and the covered employee. In these situations, you may qualify for COBRA coverage for up to 36 months.
