In brief: No, but insurers are
The consolidated omnibus budget reconciliation act of 1985 (cobra) requires insurers to offer continued coverage after leaving employment.
Some employers will offer to subsidize this coverage as part of an exit package, but usually individuals must pay the full unsubsidized premium. 41 states have additional laws requiring employers to maintain coverage following certain qualifying events.
