Sincerely, Anatoly Lipkin./ I need answer on my question because insurance agent told to my emloyer that because i will drop coverage voluntary , my wife will not be eligible for cobra. Is it so? A: Once you are entitled to Medicare you are no longer allowed to continue on the employer ‘s group health plan through COBRA. You are not able to have Medicare and COBRA. However, your spouse and dependents will still be eligible for COBRA . On the COBRA election form from your employer it will allow you to continue the coverage for your spouse and dependents for up to a total of 36 months.
