So my question is: till the time I get medical coverage from new employer (approx. 20 - 30 days), can I invoke COBRA? I heard that one can not invoke COBRA if he or she is employed (only meant for un-employement) is this true?

Also, should I call my current insurance company for COBRA now, or I can wait if I really need to visit a doctor? is there a grace period for this? Because there is a possiblity that I may never would have to visit a doctor for next 20-30 days, but who knows!

Appreciate your answers.
As per my knowledge:
You can take up to 60 days to submit COBRA forms.Apply for COBRA only when you used Doctors/Hospitals in these 20-30 days.If don't use doctors/hospitals in these 20-30 days you don't need insurance.You'll automatically get insurance from new company after 20-30 days.
