Group Health Insurance Waiting Period

By on | No Comments

Question: My wife lost her job and the medical insurance was through her employer. My job offers it but they are making me wait 6 months in my new position before I can sign up. Is that legal in Minnesota? Thank you, Jason.

Answer: Yes. Employers can set the new-hire waiting period up to 6 months before becoming eligible for the company’s health plan. Suggest you take your COBRA health insurance option for 6 months until you are covered under your employer-sponsored group plan.
