Do I Qualify For COBRA If Company Has 5 Employees?

I have worked with a company that had only 5 employees. Am I still eligible for COBRA?

Businesses in the United States are subject to the provisions of the federal COBRA law when they have 20 or more employees on at least 50% of the typical business days during the preceding year. Many states have similar health insurance continuation laws (known as mini-COBRA) to allow workers to remain on their group health plan if COBRA is unavailable due to low employee head count.
