COBRA premiums are a scandal in this country. How can someone who is unemployed be expected to pay

so much for insurance. And that's if they don't even get sick. If they go to the doctor they will have copays and deductibles. I think the COBRA actually costs more the the total of the employer contribution plus the employee contribution that was paid when the person was still working. I understand when COBRA was created it was supposed to be there to help people as a short-term gap coverage but real life is that people can't afford it. I have close relatives that are being forced to choose between health insurance and food and heat. COBRA costs too much!
