COBRA

A joke ?

Quote:
A COBRA plan's price often becomes a "conversation stopper" for someone who just lost his or her income, Pollitz said. Studies show only 20 percent of people who become eligible for COBRA plans actually use them.

COBRA just means that you can keep your benefits after you leave a company; you just have to pay for it yourself rather than having your company subsidize it. Did you not know that your health insurance benefits cost way more than your employer charges you, and that it's part of your overall compensation package even if it doesn't show up on your W2?
