Toll-free hotline for those losing COBRA, needing health insurance
San Francisco Chronicle

The federal COBRA subsidy introduced in March of 2009 was designed to cover 65 percent of COBRA health insurance premiums for up to 15 months for persons who lost their jobs as the result of a lay off occurring between September 2008 and May 2010. Each month since June 1, 2010, more COBRA enrollees have exhausted their subsidy assistance and been forced to look for coverage options elsewhere or else join the ranks of the uninsured.
