Yes, but chances are you didn't give up your old insurance b/c your
new employer has a waiting period before your eligible for their
health insurance. So you took the cobra coverage your old employer
offered, which gives you health insurance for 18 months. Although
it's expensive and now you don't have a job to pay for it. Also when
your old employer asks you if you want cobra, you don't have to say
yes or no right then. Generally I believe you can wait up to 30
days before you accept or decline cobra. Thus giving you the
opportunity to save one month of cobra. If you wait and don't go to
the doctor, you didn't need the coverage. If you go to the doctor,
then apply for cobra, it will be in effect from whence you left and
your visit will be covered. Of course this only works in the first 30
