I'm going to start on December 17. Wondering how Google handles the health care coverage for nooglers. At Facebook, the candidate is eligible for coverage starting on day 1 of the month irrespective of the exact joining date. So, will Google take care of the healthcare for Dec 1-16, or do I need to check for COBRA enrollment?
- Microsoft crymoreGooglers, how do you get a health insurance proof if you need to use your health insurance on your first day at Google? I assume that you get a card in the mail only a few weeks after your joining date.
- Facebook RdfrtYou usually have 1+ month to make your election to enroll for cobra coverage. If you elect to be covered you are retroactively covered from last time of employment. This is perfect. If nothing happens, just ignore cobra. If you needed care during the gap, enroll in cobra for a month (retrospectively). So you will have coverage even without Google.
