COBRA: Do not Lose Your Health Insurance

Advertising Information for covermehealthinsurance
When you go away from a job, you do not automatically lose your health insurance. Thanks to the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985 (COBRA), some companies that offer a group health assurance plan should provide most workers who lose their coverage the chance to maintain it for up to eighteen months. The no-win situation is that the worker must pay the complete premium, up to 102% of the manager's price. The extra 2 % is an organizational payment.

The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation is seen as a protection network. You have sixty days to make a choice about sign up COBRA, and at whatever time you sign it, the coverage is retrospective. Once you know that you will lose the group coverage, start planning to buy a new individual plan. Shop and talk to independent representatives.

If you discover a plan you like, submit an application for it. You must be able to find out if you are accepted in those sixty days. If you discover a less costly plan that meets your requirements, pay for it. If you do not find another plan, you can choose COBRA.

The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation insures all the belongings of your family, so if you discover an individual plan that works for you but does not insure your wife's pre existing sickness, go with COBRA just for her.
