  • Part-timer waiving benefits California


    Considering taking a part time job, if I waive getting health and dental benefits and later quit my job, should I still be able to choose to get cobra or cal-cobra?

    By the way, what's the difference between cobra and cal-cobra again?


  • #2
    To be eligible for Cobra you must be enrolled in your employeer group health coverage at the time of seperation. The difference is that one is federal (COBRA) and the other is california mandated (Cal-COBRA). Cal-COBRA covers employees who work for smaller employeers.


    • #3
      If you waive benefits, when/if your employment ends you will not be eligible for either COBRA or Cal-Cobra.
      The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
