Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) coverage for medical, dental, and vision is available and yes, it is expensive. You are paying the total health care premium plus 2 to 15% depending on our plan year. Please let us know and we can provide the exact figures to you.
There are options besides COBRA to consider and you should be checking into these options well before your big day. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is available and can be more affordable than COBRA. To find out what it would cost for you (or you and your dependents), contact one of Lewiston’s local insurance companies to discuss plans and rates. You may visit the Idaho Exchange website or the Washington Exchange website if you prefer to do it yourself.
