Re: [IP] now what to do



My COBRA was cancelled once because the check got there a day late.  I found
out at the drugstore when an Rx wouldn't go through.  If you call the
company administering the COBRA benes for your company, they usually ahve a
reinstate policy.  You may just be able to pay directly and be on your way
unless of course it was cancelled because you have been on cobra for the
maximum time (18 or 36 months, depending on circumstances).  You could also
call the carrier and see if you can convert to a non-group policy.

hope this helps
