Abstract

COBRA stands for Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act *COBRA is not insurance; it is the law, since 1985. COBRA allows employees and their dependents to continue employer group health insurance for several months when that insurance would usually end. *Insurance plans under COBRA are private health plans, not plans sold by the government. *The U.S. Departments of Labor and Treasury enforce COBRA.
