Does an employer have to reinstate group coverage through COBRA before the initial premium is received from the employee?

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.

Can your employer cut off health coverage without notice?

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.

Can an employer force you to keep insurance on dependent children if your ex has insurance on them but the insurance won't drop coverage unless there is a court order for the ex to cover them?

Your employer can not legally force you to insure anyone unless the employer is in possession of a court order that requires the employer to keep this coverage in place. In going thru this issue before the HR department said that: There needs to be a "qualifying event" to be able to drop coverage. However, qualifying event refers to GETTING or enrolling for coverage, NOT taking coverage off. The Blue Cross Manual says "Employees may be deleted from the plan due to termination of employment, ineligibility for coverage under the plan or when the employee does not wish to continue coverage regardless of his/her employment status and/or eligibility." Ask the Employer or Insurance Company to cite the law or their manual. It appears they are confused between getting coverage midyear and taking coverage off. CA Insurance Code 10700 et etc. applies to GETTING coverage - not taking it off at the employees request For more information see
