Who is eligible for COBRA?

Generally, employees who were enrolled in a group health plan at the time of their reduction in hours below full-time or their termination are eligible to enroll in COBRA and continue on their employer's plan(s). See this page for more information.

Spouses and dependents who were enrolled on the plan of a covered employee are also eligible for COBRA when the employee loses coverage due to termination or reduction in hours. Dependents can also become eligible in the event of divorce or death of the covered employee.
