News About Cobra

With the passage of the new stimulus bill there has been signifigant changes to COBRA. Cobra is a temporary insurance(18 months) for those that have recently been let go from there jobs.

Under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, those who were laid off since last fall may be eligible for a 65 percent subsidy to pay for COBRA, which allows people to extend employer-sponsored health insurance.
In other words individuals and families will only have to pay 35% of there Cobra payments.

However there are some negatives associated with new rule.

For examply if your health coverage was terminated when a employer shut down and laid off all its workers. Can I get the premium reduction to pay for new health coverage?

Generally, no. If there is no longer a health plan, there is often no COBRA coverage available.

For more information simply give me a call at 800.946.3157.
