Cobra insurance

For some strange reason, the federal government has mandated insurance for cobras. This Cobra insurance does not extend to any other snakes, just cobras. If the cobra loses its job through no fault of its own, it is eligible for COBRA insurance. If a human being loses his or her job, they can get Cobra insurance and be covered if a cobra bites them. Please not that this insurance covers only cobra bites so do not come crying if an asp bites you.

Get real. What is Cobra insurance really for?

Ok, we are going to give you something to throw around at parties and really impress people. COBRA stands for the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconstruction Act. Pretty impressive, huh? We won't go into how a bill like that ends up as insurance because itis boring and because we don't know.

- Some details about Cobra insurance

Basically, Cobra insures your right to continued health insurance if you lose your job through no fault of your own. If you get drunk on the job and fell into the donut grease, you are out of luck. After you are fired, you will have to pay for those nasty burns on your own nickel. To get COBRA you must have worked for a company that provided health insurance. If you worked for a company that didn't insure its workers, you are not eligible for COBRA.

The Nuts and Bolts of COBRA

You're a terrific worker but your company has outsourced your job to Outer Shimbala. You spend the first week huddled in your bed and watching Star Trek re-runs. The second week is spent calling your company in Outer Shimbala and trying to catch the Shimbalans with a tech question they can not answer. But by the third week reality sets in and you start to worry about things like income and health insurance. You find that Cobra insurance is offered automatically to all previously insured workers and all insurance companies must honor it. This sounds pretty great. The catch is that you must pay the whole premiums. These are higher than group rates but lower than individual rates.
