The federal law, Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA), allows qualified employees to continue their health insurance benefits, at their expense. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) provides for a 65 percent reduction in COBRA premiums for certain assistance eligible individuals for up to nine months.
