What do I do if my employer does not send me a COBRA notice?

What do I do if my employer does not send me a COBRA notice?

Despite the fact that COBRA has been the law for over 10 years many employers still fail to furnish COBRA notices to help employees continue their health coverage. If you terminate employment and do not promptly receive a notice, write your employer a letter demanding a notice. This letter should be sent certified mail, return receipt requested, and should be addressed to the administrator of the medical plan. If a notice is not sent, the employer could be subject to statutory penalties of up to $110 per day and could be liable for your otherwise covered medical expenses.
