Does COBRA Cover Prescription Medication?
Are my prescriptions covered under COBRA?
Yes, COBRA Covers Pharmacy Prescriptions, If You Had That Coverage Previously
Yes. The COBRA law allows you and your dependents to continue on the exact same coverage that you had with the employer’s group health plan. Nothing changes in regards to your medication. The prescription coverage you had previously is the same during COBRA continuing coverage.
