    Q: Are employees who are on active military leave entitled to health insurance?

    A: For absences of less than 30 days, benefits continue as if the employee were not absent at all.

    For absences of 31 days or more, coverage stops unless the employee elects to pay for COBRA-like coverage (for a period of up to 18 months). Even if you can't put the employee back to work immediately upon his return from active service, the health insurance must be restored immediately with no waiting period.

    For quite a few more articles on this topic, type in "userra insurance" (without the quote marks) in the Search box in left blue menu on this page (at bottom of menu).
