Pennsylvanians Encouraged to Take Another Look at COBRA Options
Date:3/5/2009

-3272 or www.dol.gov/cobra.

COBRA can be an expensive option, but now be a more affordable choice for those who have declined the coverage previously because of high premiums. Other options for those out of work would be to price products in the individual market, look into the availability of a working spouse's coverage, find out about CHIP coverage for children, and consider the adultBasic program.

While there is a significant wait list for adultBasic, there is also the option to purchase the coverage at-cost, which is about $330 per month, per person.

For information on these and other options, the Insurance Department has published "Out of a Job," a health options brochure, as well as a new COBRA fact sheet. Those materials can be found in the "Publications" section of www.insurance.state.pa.us.

Consumers with questions are invited to call the Insurance Department's toll-free, automated consumer hotline at (877) 881-6388, or contact any of the department's Bureau of Consumer Services' regional offices: (717) 787-2317 in Harrisburg; (215) 560-2630 in Philadelphia; or (412) 565-5020 in Pittsburgh.
