Anybody in New York figured out the best options for health care after losing a job? Is the exchange possible or is COBRA your best bet?

I just signed up for Obamacare on a recommendation from my doctors assistant. Haven’t used it as I wrapped all medical visit before my coverage lapsed. Cobra is pricey and this is free if you are unemployed. https://nystateofhealth.ny.gov/. I chose health first as my provider but as I said I’m hoping I won’t need it as it is a backup free plan between jobs.

Cobra runs out at some point. Then you shop on the exchange. Realize that group insurance you had is great compared to individual. Plus you may have to find new doctors with individual/family. Sucks

I used Oscar and found the coverage and care great, and much cheaper than cobra. It was also really easy to navigate and they have great customer service. My husband was on health first for a while and the available providers were definitely subpar

I’ve been offered a job in house. The company is great and I like the people a lot. The pay would be in the low 200s all in and they’d let me work remotely as long as I could be on site when needed. My only real concern is the pay cut. I’m a senior associate and I’d make about half what I could make next year at my firm if you count the bonus. I have some fairly significant personal financial obligations (family health stuff) that make a big pay cut scary. Any advice?
