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/month Per Individual

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.

COBRA Insurance is actually the name of a federal law and not a company. All employers with 20 or more full-time workers are required to offer COBRA, which is the same work health insurance you had.

As COBRA is the same work health insurance you had, the plan continues to be managed by the employer.

Average Cost Of COBRA Insurance In 2022

Health insurance plans through an employer are ACA Certified. They cover pre-existing conditions and have prescription medication benefits. COBRA is a continuation of that same work health insurance.

According to the Kaiser foundation, the average cost of individual health insurance in the United States is $438/month in 2022. Not all states are close to equal. In Colorado, the monthly average premium is $358, for example. Whereas in West Virginia, individuals may pay over $750 per month for health care coverage.

What Is COBRA?

COBRA is a federal law that requires employers with 20 or more employees to offer the same group health care coverage after you’ve voluntarily or involuntarily left your job or have had your work hours reduced. Because COBRA is simply the same coverage you had through a previous employer, you would need to contact the COBRA Administrator at your previous employer to begin or cancel coverage. Typically, the COBRA Administrator is in the HR department or the company that sponsored the insurance may use a third party administrator.
