(PRWEB) January 23, 2013

When the average cost of COBRA insurance is a whopping $15,073 annually according to a Kaiser Family Foundation survey, what options do people really have for healthcare after job loss?

COBRA Insurance Direct just released an infographic to help individuals and families figure out just that.
