Legally? no, your employer has 60 days to mail you information on COBRA policies they offer. Your policy from your employment will terminate 30 business days after your employment ends

I believe the answer to that is no, although once the payment is made, there is an exta amount that can be paid to cover the time in between the termination of employment, and the beginnign of COBRA coverage.

No. Under ERISA (a federal law for employer health plans), an employer has to give at least 60 days notice before ending a health plan. The bummer is that COBRA coverage will not be available if the employer ends the plan. The carrier may offer you an individual (non-group) plan.

Texas does not have a state mandated disability program. You can get coverage through your employer if they offer a voluntary option. You would need to begin coverage before getting pregnant.

Absolutely not. No one except yourself has access to your medical records. If an employer is requesting or obtaining your records, he is probably in voilation of HIPPA provacy laws.
