  • Ohio-company wants me to sign Cobra

    I never was unemployed!

    I work for a company(1) that contracted me out to a larger company(2) to get reduced insurance benefits. So my legal company(2) is the one that supplies me with insurance benefits. I took a disability leave to which company(1)provided me with disability payments. I returned to work after being off of work eight weeks. Last night I received a Cobra form stating that I had left company(2), they say they only have a 30 day policy to maintain insurance benefits, although company(1) continued to make the premiums. I feel like I am doing something illegal if I sign this form and that by signing it might somehow down the road create more problems for me. They(2) at this time are not paying any insurance claims that followed after the 30 day period. I was called and told today to hurry and fill out this Cobra form and fax back tomorrow so that I could be reinstated and claims would be paid. Who goofed up?? Where does each company stand? Where do I stand? And must I sign this? It would appear to be a form of fraud on my part if I did.

    Sign me Perplexed.

    I don't know if you have a lot of options at first. I would sign the form right away, if you can afford the costs, and then fight the matter.
