ody A: COBRA is a law (not a separate insurance company) that requires employers with 20 or more employees to offer the continuation of the same group health care coverage after you’ve voluntarily or involuntarily left your job. Therefore, in order to qualify for COBRA continuation of coverage, you simply have to be on your previous employer’s group health plan before you leave your job in order to be eligible for COBRA continuation.
