11th Hour Reprieve

GOOD NEWS! I may have an extra two weeks. The company found a few extra bucks by doing some number games. Plus, the company pays for healthcare a month in advance so I will be guaranteed to have coverage for December regardless of my November departure date. The tentative (until I get it in writing) layoff date of December 1, 2005 means that I will receive paychecks during December. The company told us (those that got the axe) that we would be receiving a new "layoff letter". I am eagerly awaiting it.

I believe that I have found some sanely priced insurance from CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield.

BluePreferred PPO - OTHER

Yearly Deductible $250 $500 $1000 $2500 $5000
 Monthly Payment





And these are family plan prices. The prices may change a little due to underwriting.

$498 versus COBRA?!? Not even a contest!

Now, I need to locate some term life insurance, find the unemployment office, and find a job. It is gonna suck to leave this company. I doubt I will find a management structure that treats its people with such respect again... unless I start my own(... hmmmmm maybe....).

Hun, sorry. COBRA doesn't work that way. I looked at the governement site and asked the HR guy at work. The effective start date for COBRA coverage is the day your regular coverage ends. You must pay. You may be thinking of the "you have 31 days to elect coverage" thing.
