Q: I am going to be employed with a company that offers full company paid medical insurance. The only problem is that they do not offer a dental plan. Can I get only dental plan thru COBRA? Or does it have to be both dental and medical? A: You will be allowed to choose any or all of the coverages that you had with your previous employer. On the election form ( that you will get from your employer) you will be able to select only the coverages you want.
