Question Does my employer have to offer me the opportunity to elect continuation of my health insurance coverage?

Answer In general, most employers with 20 or more employees who provide group health plans must offer each 'qualified beneficiary' who would otherwise lose coverage under the plan because of a 'qualifying event' an opportunity to elect continuation of the coverage received immediately before the qualifying event.
