COBRA

Definition

A health insurance plan which allows an employee who leaves a company to continue to be covered under the company's health plan, for a certain time period and under certain conditions. The name results from the fact that the program was created under the Consolidated Omnibus Reconciliation Act. The system is designed to prevent employees who are between jobs from experiencing a lapse in coverage.
