Tell Congress to Subsidize COBRA During the Pandemic
We are calling on Congress to include in the next stimulus package a 100% COBRA premium subsidy to ensure those out of work can still afford to remain on their healthcare during this public health crisis and we need your help.
Workers who lose job-based healthcare coverage have the option of continuing enrollment in their plan for up to 18 months, but most people don’t end up taking COBRA due to the prohibitive cost. The unprecedented scale of sudden unemployment during the COVID-19 outbreak calls for unprecedented immediate action by the federal government to ensure millions of workers are not kicked off their health insurance plans during this pandemic. Subsidizing COBRA premiums 100% is a way to make this option affordable to those out of work due to the COVID-19 crisis and assure those workers that their job-based healthcare coverage will be continued during this critical time.
