Arizona Health Insurance Continuation (COBRA): What you need to know

Federal law requires continuation of coverage when an employee or beneficiary loses insurance coverage because of certain events. In Arizona, disability insurance policies must provide for the right of covered family members to continue coverage after the death or divorce of the named insured (AZ Stat. Sec. 20-1377).

Coverage provided by such a conversion policy must provide the same benefits as the terminated policy, unless a lesser form of coverage is chosen by the insured. Continuation or conversion of coverage may, at the option of the spouse exercising the right, include covered dependent children for whom the spouse has responsibility for care or support.
