ody My daughter left her place of employment over 45 days ago; she is still listed on the active insurance list. She has never received COBRA information.
1. Is she covered since her company did not notify insurance?
2. What does she need to do?
A: She will want to contact her previous employer to address the issue directly. Even though she is listed as active, if she tries to submit a claim, she will likely not be able to get anything for it once they look into her account. This could lead to a lot of financial trouble in the future.
She should contact her previous employer and request COBRA information, or to speak to the COBRA Administrator. If your previous employer can not answer your questions or does not comply, you can call the Department of Labor at 1-866-487-2365.
