Continuing Health Insurance via the Legislature in COBRA
Does anyone here use or has anyone here used COBRA in the US to extend their medical coverage? Any thoughts about the program? Things I should know before persuing the option? Back story: I will be going off of my family's insurance plan in the winter (kicked off due to my old age, heh) and may not have a job with medical right away. Going without medical insurance is absolutely not an option (and is illegal in my field of work). I don't have a problem making payments on the program, but would like to hear some thoughts about the program. ALSO: I will more than likely be on a similar insurance plan within 3 months from a position at a hospital or university after I am dropped from my family's plan. ETA; Thank you all for your responses!
