I can't guarantee is have the answer, but I admire the question.
This will also depend on your state law.
Now COBRA is a continuation of company benefits, when someone loses
their health insurance though termination, a wage earners death, etc.
But in your case, the domestic partnership plan, is no longer offered to current employees.
Since COBRA is continuation coverage, you and your dependents would have offered whatever
is available to the current employees.
So I would say no, COBRA is not available as far as the federal law,
and to check your state mini cobra regulations.
: My company is being purchased by another company and my girlfirend is covered under a domestic partnership for medical-dental-vision benefits currently. The new company does not offer domestic benefits. Would the new company have to offer COBRA benefits to my girlfirend that was covered under my company? Thanks
