If I get sick and can no longer work, can I get COBRA?
Before you go to COBRA, think about an exchange plan. If you earn less than 400% of Federal Poverty, then you can go to the insurance exchange and get government subsidies to pay for your health insurance. This will likely be less expensive than your COBRA premiums. However, the exchange plan may have lower coverage than your employer plan. You will want to compare the two plans, taking into account the monthly premiums and your deductibles and co-pays.
Hope you are on the mend!
