: I am preparing to quit work and opt for permanent disability. Fortunately my company carries private disability insurance. I am also currently covered by the company's group medical insurance, which is provided by another carrier. Once I go on permanent disability I will no longer be covered by the company's group plan. My concern is that the health insurance carrier may try to drop me. Has anyone gone through this?
There is a law called "Cobra". This law allows you to pay for the insurance you have until you find new insurance
if you need to or want to. Your insurance can not be dropped. You should be provided with
this information before leaving work. Good Luck, Sue
