You have up to 65 days after you lose your coverage to decide whether to take advantage of COBRA, and another 95 days after that to pay the first premium. That means, for example, that if you think you might be between jobs for just a short time, you could try going without insurance for up to 65 days. If you’re then hit with big medical bills during that time, they will be covered retroactively if you say “yes” to COBRA by the deadline and pay the premium.

According to Louisiana&rsquo s Insurance Commissioner Jim Donelon, about 95 percent of drivers carry the minimum car insurance limits required by state law. With a lot of &ldquo working poor&rdquo in Louisiana, Donelon has noted that those in auto accidents see ads by lawyers saying they will get them money and feel entitled to get a big check for a minor accident. Thus litigation is another reason that Louisiana car insurance rates are so high.

State-specific laws for COBRA

For example, let’s say you’re currently enrolled in a family plan through your spouse’s employer. You’re getting a divorce, so you need to switch to COBRA for a single person since your spouse will continue to cover the kids. The employee benefits officer will look up the health insurance premium for the same health plan you have now, but using the rates for a single individual rather than for a family. He or she will then add what the company would have been contributing toward that premium, what the single individual would have been contributing toward that premium (this would have been your portion of the payroll deduction that your spouse was paying for the family plan), and the 7 percent service charge, to get your premium for COBRA coverage with that health plan as a single person.
