Efforts are under way in Congress to do away with the temporary extensions on legislation that allows laid-off workers to receive help with COBRA health care premiums. The Senate passed a bill to extend the 65 percent subsidy through the end of 2010. The measure is now under debate in the House.
Without the subsidy, many newly-unemployed workers will not be able to afford coverage. And, the deadline for the latest 30-day extension is fast approaching!
Tell Congress to pass the year-long extension of the COBRA subsidy today!
