This federal regulation states that if employees lose health insurance coverage due to a reduction in hours or termination of employment (for reasons other than gross misconduct), they and their eligible dependents can continue that coverage for up to eighteen months from the date of loss of coverage. (In certain situations, such as the covered person's total disability during the first sixty days of the COBRA period, the continuation of coverage would extend up to twenty-nine months.) The cost for COBRA coverage is 102% of the total health premium (employer contribution + employee contribution) for the plan year. Rates can be found on the main benefits page.
