Do I keep my health coverage if I am out of work under the family and medical leave act (FMLA)?

[videoandtranscript id=”223320022″]

If you work for an employer that has 50 or more employees, and you fall under the Family and Medical Leave Act, or what’s also known as the FMLA, you have a right to have your health care coverage maintained during any leave of absence. Here’s what you need to know: it’s at your obligation. Your employer does not have to pay those premiums. You may have to. That depends on whether the employer has agreed to do so or not. You should find out from your human resources individual whether they do offer that benefit, but under federal law they are entitled to maintain the health care benefits. The only outstanding question is who pays for them?
