Creditable Coverage Notice

You should be provided with a certificate of creditable coverage, free of charge, from your group health plan or health insurance issuer when you lose coverage under the plan, when you become entitled to COBRA, when COBRA coverage ceases, if you request it before you lose coverage, or if you request it up to 24 months after losing coverage.
 
Without evidence of creditable coverage from the plan, you may be subject to a pre-existing condition exclusion for 12 months (18 months for late enrollees) after your enrollment date in other coverage.
