What is a COBRA qualifying event?
A COBRA qualifying event occurs when an event listed in the COBRA statute occurs, and the event causes an employee, spouse, or covered dependent to lose health insurance under the employers group health plan. To lose health insurance means the individual ceases to be covered under the same terms and conditions they were covered under before the event happened.
