*If you do have the option of continuing in an existing health insurance plan through your former employer (COBRA), you can continue this coverage for up to 18 months.
* Please be aware that the Direct Coverage Plan ends when your unemployment insurance benefits end. There is no opportunity to extend Direct Coverage beyond your MSP eligibility.

This means that when your unemployment benefits end, your health insurance will end.
