  •  not always true (0+ / 0-)

    it depends upon the employer and the plan. The amount I pay under COBRA for the plan I have is approximately the same as what I was contributing for the same plan when I was employed, and with the tax deduction for health insurance premiums, my tax position with respect to 'pretax' does not change.  I know this isn't true for other plans and other employers though - I just wanted to let you know it isn't always true.  I remember when I was laid off a government contracting job, the COBRA payment for maintaining that plan was about $900 a month for an individual, needless to say I didn't keep it.
