Cobra

  1. Not sure where to post this, but I am sure someone here will know the answer to this.. this is in California, dunno if it makes a difference or not. I have a friend that quit his job and took another that doesn't offer health insurance, is eligible to get insurance through COBRA or does he have to be terminated to do so? Thanks Wendy

    Not in California, but I have gotten health insurance through COBRA after voluntarily leaving a couple of jobs. Your friend should talk to the HR person at his former job and he/she should be able to set it up for him if he is indeed eligible.

    Thanks Dianics, I will tell him. He was kinda pissed off when he quit so I don't know that he will follow the good advice that you've given. You know how guys are Wendy

    Here's some info....

    Good luck - and tell him to get some insurance one way or the other fast - the Murphy's law gremlins have a list (updated daily) of the uninsured!)
