Can You Get COBRA For You Or Dependents If You Become Incarcerated?
I have a friend who has been incarcerated for DWI. During the time he is in prison, does he and/or his dependent qualify for COBRA coverage?
Unless, there would be a stipulation with employer and the health insurance carrier, quitting your job is a qualifying event for COBRA coverage. The primary may use the coverage for themselves or any dependents, including spouse that was already on the health plan.
