Will an employee who is laid off continue to be covered under the State's health plan?
An employee's coverage under the State's health plan will end the last day of the month in which the employee worked. Following the employee's last day of work, a letter will be sent to the employee's home advising them of health insurance continuation provisions under COBRA. Coverage under COBRA will be available for 18 months. Employees will be responsible for paying fees in full, which will be at a higher rate.
