Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA)

A person who has been fired from their job faces many difficult challenges. Not only is the prospect of finding a new job daunting, there may be other consequences besides simply being out of work. The biggest concern for terminated employees is often health care coverage. Besides being unable to pay the bills, one may face the secondary crisis of not having health care coverage for the family.

The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act or "COBRA" requires that employers allow former employees the opportunity to continue their health care coverage for a period of time after they are terminated. When an employee is terminated, the employer is required to notify the health plan administrator within thirty days of the termination. The health plan administrator is then required to notify the employee of his or her rights under COBRA within fourteen days of the date on which the administrator is notified of the termination.
