I don't know about adults, COBRA is available for children of parents with insurance up until age 26 provided they have been attending college. (At least at the time I made use of it).
I'm lucky to have HIPAA coverage since Clinton signed it in.
But, its only a last resort for dire inpatient service as there are breaks in privacy laws and if insurance X which contracts to one of these piss-poor Mental Health Insurance Contractors is forced to be "overturned" with Mental Health parity laws, there's a chance that they could erase the insurance entirely leaving a court case for years.
Prescription drugs with insurance X is not a problem with the bean counters other than 2 times the going cost or more for new agents, but any provider that's a psychiatrist or a psychologist and not a certified neurologist or such would not be something that is a good idea to use insurance X for. So I don't. Lucky that I can do so.
