Contingent Trust

ABC Blocks

A federal law that enables employees and their families to continue health care coverage under an employers group health plan even after they experience an event — such as a layoff, termination, cut in hours, or divorce — that would otherwise end their coverage. employees and their families must pay the full premium, but they get to pay the employer-negotiated group rate, which is often less expensive than an individual rate. this continued coverage lasts for 18 to 36 months, depending on the event that made the employee eligible.
