Re: [IP] COBRA coverage beyond 18 months

There is something called the HIPPA act (Health Insurance Portability and 
AccountabilityAct) which can help you get into another health ins. group 
after your COBRA expires but you would have to pay for the coverage (similar 
to the way you paid for COBRA coverage) and type of coverage may differ.   If 
you meet certain requirements you must be provided with a choice of  coverage 
with no pre-existing condition exclusion.  

Other -You may extend your COBRA coverage for up to 29 months if you are on 
Soc. Security Disabilty.
