Q: How do I reach COBRA’s customer service?
A: Since COBRA is the name of a federal law and not a company, each employer hires a COBRA Administrator. Common COBRA Administrators include ADP, Discovery Benefits and WageWorks. If you have major pre-existing health conditions or visit the doctor frequently, you should call your former employer and ask for their COBRA Administrator. You may be able to keep the same benefits but you will pay the full cost of coverage, plus an administrative fee, which is typically $400 – $500 per person per month.
If you are fairly healthy and still want to remain insured, more affordable alternatives may be available based on where you live. Term health insurance is a popular option and available in most States. This can protect you from high medical costs of new injuries or new illnesses that unexpectedly occur while allowing you to use any licensed doctor. Coverage is available up to $1 million per person.
