How Much Does COBRA Insurance Cost?

I’m interested in getting COBRA Insurance. How much is COBRA?

On Average, The Monthly COBRA Premium Cost Is $400 – 700 Per Person

Continuing on an employer’s major medical health plan with COBRA is expensive. You are now responsible for the entire insurance premium, whereas your previous employer subsidized a portion of that as a work benefit. Often times there is a 2% administration fee that may be legally added on.

What Is My Cost?

After your work health insurance ends, you will receive a notification from your employer on how to enroll. This notification is to come within 45 days of the plan ending.

In this notification, you will learn what your actual COBRA premium costs will be.

Who Do I Make Premium Payments To?

As COBRA coverage is the same work health insurance you had, you will make your monthly premium payments to the employer or their appointed third-party administrator. Look at the COBRA election notice you were sent for the payment address or if you can arrange payments online.

Is Your Paperwork Missing?

If you have not received the paperwork to enroll in COBRA, you should contact the human resources department that provides this insurance.
