Kentucky Offers Additional Help to Uninsured

Through funds provided to the state via the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, Kentucky has extended the deadline for unemployed citizens to receive additional assistance with health insurance. People electing to sign up for COBRA, or Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act, the federally provided health insurance program available for people who have been laid off from their jobs, will now only be required to pay 35% of the premium, with the state picking up the rest of the tab. Also, people who previously declined COBRA coverage will be given the option of enrolling under these new terms. How many people do you think who previously turned down the coverage due to the high cost will now opt to take advantage of the program?
