Eligibility for Cobra Ins.

ody Q: I am planning on resigning my current position. My new employers Insurance does not take effect for 60 days, I have three questions-

1. Am I still eligible for Cobra if I resign, or is it only for people that are laid off?

2. Can I float without Insurance for the 60 days or does this effect me getting my new Insurance since there is a lapse in Insurance coverage? I have pre-existing conditions.

3. If I do float without Insurance coverage and something happens to me at day 45, can I then get the Cobra Insurance so I’m covered?
