COBRA Subsidy Extended

HR 3326 was signed into law this week. The bill (actually a DOD bill) provides the following benefits to those going onto COBRA (or currently in their first 9 months of COBRA):

1. Subsidy on federal COBRA will be extended from 9 months to 15 months at 65% paid by the employer (no information yet on Cal-COBRA)

2. Subsidy qualification has been extended to 2/28/2010 and notification is required to anyone who exhausted the 9 months subsidy already (and is still within the 15 month window)

3. Extends unemployment benefits an additional 6 months


  1. Does anyone know the fastest way to learn of the Cal-COBRA subsidy being extended, if and when it ever is?

  2. See my blog today (1/7) concerning Cal-COBRA.

  3. Interesting topic. I'll check out your site too.

Mo Brooks Introduces One Line Bill to Repeal Obamacare

Mo Brooks (R-AL) has entered a one sentence bill for repeal of the ACA (ObamaCare). Seen as more of a symbolic gesture (the bill did not go to vote in the House), he gets right to the point in a succinct fashion...

“Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted.”

Kaiser Foundation Interactive Subsidy Map (TrumpCare vs. ObamaCare)

An interactive subsidy map provided by Kaiser Foundation allows you to see the impact of tax credit subsidy (2020) versus income-based subsidy (current).  Sorted by county in all 50 states.  Those above 400% federal poverty level would do much better, those below, depends on county and income.  Most below 200% would do much worse.  

Subsidies under ACA are based primarily on income.  Tax Credits would be based primarily on age.
