COBRA coverage while moving abroad?

Recommended Posts


Can I still keep my coverage under COBRA if I'm moving abroad? My company offers coverage, and I'll only really need this when I'm visiting the US for work (month and a half a year). I'm moving to a country with a weaker healthcare system, and ideally would like to keep getting looked after my doctors in the US when I do make the short visits back for work.

The insurance plan my employer is offering me locally in the country I'm moving to does not cover international so money wise, it makes sense for me. My underlying health condition cost way more for checkups and tests than the cost of paying for annual coverage under COBRA.

Ash M, you don't say what triggered COBRA, e.g. have you been terminated by the company, and your returns to U.S. for work are going to be as an independent contractor?
