A: COBRA is a federal law that requires employers with 20 or more employees to offer the continuation of the same group health care coverage after you've voluntarily or involuntarily left your job, or have had your work hours reduced. In order to be eligible for COBRA, you will have to have had health insurance through your employer's group health plan, regardless of how long you worked there. Typically employers have a 30-90 day probationary period before a new employee may enroll in a group health plan, but in some cases coverage could begin on the first day.
