Am I Still Eligible For COBRA If I Do Not Have Health Insurance?

My husband and I do not have health insurance. We have been without health insurance for a year now and his health insurance at his job is so expensive. Are we able to get COBRA insurance, what are our options?

Your employer has up to 45 days to send you a letter by mail about your eligibility to continue your workplace health insurance, otherwise known as COBRA. You have 60 days from when the written notice was sent to you to enroll in your previous health plan. If you miss the election period date you will lose your rights and will no longer qualify for continuation coverage.
