A provision of Nevada law provides continuation rights to employees and their dependents on leave without pay because of a total disability (Nev. Rev. Stat. Ann. Sec. 689B.0345). The coverage must be at least what the employee had before becoming disabled. Such coverage must continue until:
• The date on which the employment of the employee or member is terminated;
• The date on which the employee or member obtains another policy of health insurance;
• The date on which the group policy of health insurance is terminated; or
• After a period of 12 months in which benefits under such coverage are provided to the employee or member.
