My COBRA medical in-network plan rate is $607 per month. Is this a good rate? Anyone has a recommended medical insurance for bridge period between to jobs that you believe is better than COBRA? Also appreciate if there is any specific advice or things to pay attention to regarding using COBRA, it’s my first time doing this.

Ohhh that’s absolutely good to know - thanks so much!!!

What’s cobra

Under COBRA act you can continue your insurance with employer at your own expense for 18 months after you left the firm

The 60 day retroactive limit for COBRA was temporarily suspended, so you can retroactively elect it up to 18 months later. So just be uninsured, and only elect if you incur large medical expenses.

That’s awesome!! Thanks so much!

Renters/homeowners/earthquake insurance ?: I’m reviewing my renewal policy docs for my renters and earthquake policies (im in Los Angeles). I’m 32F 🐠 single no kids. I own enough stuff to fill a 2 bedroom apartment if one room were an office/misc storage stuff. Currently am in a 4bd/4bath town house with 2 roommates. I’ve had these policies for 10+ years but truthfully haven’t read or paid much attention to limits or terms in the past (I also didn’t own much for most of that time).
