If an employee is out on one of the required leave benefits in the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, is that employee eligible for health insurance benefits?

Yes, the employee is eligible for medical insurance while on Emergency Paid Sick Leave and Emergency Family Medical Leave under this act.

In addition, the company would qualify for a credit for any amount paid or incurred by the employer to provide and maintain a group health plan, but only to the extent that such amounts are excluded from the gross income of the employees.
