I did the same 2 months ago. Feel amazing now and am interviewing with McKinsey and BCG for much more interesting/rewarding type of work (or so i hope). Life is so much better now

Confirm with HR but you typically have 90 days to elect Cobra and it’s retroactive to your last day at the firm but you’re typically covered through the calendar month when you quit (because you’ve already paid the premium). HR will be able to answer any questions once you’ve quit

like

Assuming you’re in the US, your insurance would cover you until the end of the month. So if your last day is 27th, your last day of Insurance coverage is 28th. After that you could do Cobra. Most companies will honor two weeks unless you go to a competitor, so you should be ok there. I am sorry you’re in this boat. I don’t know the details, but I hope things will turn for the better. Please don’t be afraid to speak to a therapist. Good luck to you.

Idk how regulations have changed, but back in 2016 I used Healthcare.gov to buy a plan that was much less than Cobra. I paid something like 300 a month for health insurance with a 1k deductible and fully covered medicine etc.

I second the healthcare.gov

Thanks everyone for solid advice. Trying to hang in there until March 1st so insurance is covered till the end of March. Will look at Healthcare.gov...

OP- as mentioned above. Cobra is retro active. I would give my notice so my last day was March 1. You’ll have insurance for the whole month. Come April don’t do anything. If you need health for anything emergency related then you can get cobra after something occurs such as a broken bone. If you get a cold just pay out of pocket. In most all cases it’ll be cheaper then paying 300-1000 a month. Like P1 above said. Get help if you need to speak to someone. Lost someone this weekend over a mental health issue. People around you love you

Don’t you have a specific period of time for which you have to register for healthcare.gov after a life event?

Usually health insurance lasts for the rest of the month

My HR told me I’m only covered till the end of our pay periods (15th or the end of the month). Can that be right?

Current project is very chill and management likes me/gives good reviews but I’m not challenged and do not lead others. I’ve considered switching projects to go up early (SC year2). I am six weeks pregnant, first pregnancy at 33. The other reason I wonder about going up early is that I’m not sure I want to be going up during year3 after being out on maternity leave and life drastically changing. I started my professional career late so feel like I’m playing catch-up too, any advice? Thanks!

Hi 🙋🏼‍♀️ Accenture moms. Re healthcare benefits: did you select HDHP or PPO plan and why? I’ve been on the HDHP plan for the last few years, which has worked well as I almost never see a doctor, but we’re planning to get pregnant next year and I’m reevaluating my options. How many prenatal apts should I expect? Is PPO better for this? Anything you wish you had known about being pregnant with ACN health benefits?
