 Continuation of Health Benefits (COBRA)
 In April of 1986, Congress passed the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA). One of the provisions of this Act requires employers to allow terminated employees (for reasons other than gross misconduct) and dependents who would otherwise lose their health insurance coverage to continue group coverage. This means that you may continue these group health benefits at your own cost for at least 18 months if your employment terminates for any reason except gross misconduct.
