When Does COBRA Coverage Start?

I’m new to this process. We have an employee who terminated July 15. Coverage for this employee will continue end July 31 as the insurer covers by the full month and not partial periods. Does the continuation coverage start from July 14 or from August 1st?

The continuation of health insurance under COBRA starts the same day that it ends, once the premium payment has been made.

After the coverage restarts, out-of-pocket medical expenses while coverage is pending may be submitted for reimbursement.
