More on COBRA Subsidy

It's a mini-roller coaster ride here, with the Associated Press now saying an extension of the COBRA subsidy past June 1 is dead. For people who already started receiving it, you will still receive the 15 months. But if you lose your job after May 31, there may not be a subsidy for you.

Hang in, though -- it's not over till it's over. Anything can happen with Congress in the mix. J


  1. The COBRA subsidy program must be continued for those who have reached their 15-month maximum. Without assistance beyond the 15-month allowance, millions of Americans will not be able to afford their monthly COBRA/CalCOBRA premium payments.

  2. I certainly agree. I hope you have contacted your members of Congress and shared your view with them. J
