    I am an ex Jevic guy. Saw a few posts concerned about health ins and mentioned COBRA.
    When Jevic went out in the same fashion, All benefits stopped the day of the letter, in NCT case
    6-9-14. COBRA was not available.

    Q19: Am I eligible for COBRA if my company closed or went bankrupt and there is no health plan?
    If there is no longer a health plan, there is no COBRA coverage available. If, however, there is another plan offered by the company, you may be covered under that plan. Union members who are covered by a collective bargaining agreement that provides for a medical plan also may be entitled to continued coverage

    That is an answer form the Govt site

    It should run until the end of the month. BCBS is paid a month in advance.

    HR said we will be sent information on COBRA in the mail. That is only available until July 31st.

    Health insurance ends midnight the last day you work. If you are currently out and under dispatch you are still covered. I still don't think that is true because as I said earlier, BCBS they paid ahead for 30 days.

    the Bull **** part is i just looked at my last paystub and they take out Insurance. How can they take it out if we dont have health care anymore? Im not happy i still don thave my toll money back yet. Im told it may be another week. Now that sucks because they are going to put in in a pay check. Well this was my money and now they will take it for child suport. That is suck BS i need that to pay my car insurance. See what hapends when you help yoru company out.

    IF you call BCBS they say it works on the system. But he told me on the phone dont use it, If something goes thrugh i may get hit with a high bill. I need to find out if its on i need to fill my BP meds for 90 days so i have them.
    Makes a note to call bcbs in the am then call my DR!

    No i never said that! I was saying its Bull **** if they take out the money and we dont have insurance. My kid always comes first. I paid 342.00 in suport this week and i only made 48.97 take home. So sorry if i do worry about my Credit loosing my car and other things. But i always pay my suport.
    So for you to put me down yes that upsets me! Sorry imnot trying to be rude about it but hell since i got word that i lost my job i have been busting my butt looking for work and have 9 jobs lined up just wating for drug and back ground test to cleare. I dont want to fall behind in my support.

    You only paid it because they took it, otherwise you would have taken it run. yeah I know I don't know you but it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure you out.

I love my child and will do anything I can for her. I'm not trying to fight with you do I will not reply anymore. Good luck with everything.

    HR just told me that benefits ended your last day worked. I wish they'd get it right, Right! They said to register at www.benedirect.adp.com for COBRA
