I am leaving my current employer tomorrow. I have worked for this company for 30 1/2 years. I contacted HR and they told me that my health insurance ends the day I leave the company. I thought it would cover me at least until the end of the month. Is this leagle?

I am leaving my current employer tomorrow. I have worked for this company for 30 1/2 years. Impressive tenure!

 

I contacted HR and they told me that my health insurance ends the day I leave the company. I thought it would cover me at least until the end of the month. Is this leagle?Yes, health insurance is part of your compensation plan for being employed with that employer, and like a paycheck, unless you work out a settlement or a severance, if warranted, it can end when the paycheck ends. There is COBRA, of course, which you can likely avail yourself of, but that means you pay not only your regular portion of the premium, but that portion your employer was picking up as well.

 

I wish it were easier!
