Who is responsable for insurance coverage between lay off and COBRA election?
On 3/18 I was laid off, received COBRA election paperwork on 3/26, returned to elect coverage on 4/8. Went to fill monthly prescription on 4/7 and was told that insurance was invalid and called insurnace company and was told that company stopped coverage on 3/18. Have received two final checks and both had insurance premiums deducted. I was never informed that policy was stopped on 3/18. What can be done and do they have the legal right to just stop my policy? COBRA is retroactive, if within timeframe, but what about time between lay off and election?
