Columbus, OH (PressExposure) February 14, 2009 -- Do you understand COBRA? Do you know that you have many choices when electing COBRA benefits?
Alta Vista Benefits specializes in helping people shop for less expensive alternatives to the high cost of COBRA coverage. We provide client education so that people who are losing their benefits can have the coverage they need at a lower cost.
The current rate that companies are experiencing layoffs has caused many people to lose their employer health coverage. In most cases, information about alternatives is not readily available and the unemployed choose COBRA as their only insurance option.
Former employees can be surprised to learn that disability coverage and life insurance are not part of a COBRA election. In some cases, the life insurance and disability through the employer has been the only coverage the family has.
Alta Vista Benefits provides free education about how COBRA legislation works and the way individual rights work. Lucy Grosz will be speaking about COBRA and alternatives at the Forty Plus meeting in Columbus, OH on February 16th, 2009.
