You May Only Use COBRA One Time For Each Qualifying Event That Stops Your Health Insurance

COBRA continuation lasts for up to 18 months (in some situations a dependent can continue for up to 36 months) and is available each time your employer-sponsored health insurance would end due to a qualifying event.

Mini-COBRA Is Available In Some States

If you lost your employer’s group health plan, many states have a mini-COBRA law that would be available if your employer has 19 or fewer employees. Each time you have a qualifying event, you may use federal COBRA or state continuation laws.
