More details to this question:
1) I provided four times the contract notice 2) salaried employee 3) triple called for additional info after my exit interview because I wasn't given any information if I owed for vacation days, etc 4) hospitalized and contacted employeer >30+ later once I realized I should have been offered COBRA and had ~$10,000 in medical bills that needed to be paid immediately 5) never received notice or was told about COBRA by the company until I reached out in September

If you are fired they have to offer COBRA.  If you quit, you have to ask for it, unless you have a contract that says so.
