New Destination Site Helps Consumers Weigh Benefits of COBRA Insurance Compared to Private Health Plans
Austin, TX -- April 28, 2009 -- Austin-based All Web Leads, an online sales lead provider for the U.S. insurance industry, today launched its newest destination Web site, www.cobrainsurance. com. The new site serves as an educational resource for U.S. consumers who have recently experienced job loss and are considering COBRA insurance, but want to understand the full range of other health insurance options.
"Present economic conditions are forcing struggling companies around the country to shed employees at a staggering rate, leaving many without healthcare coverage for themselves or their families," said Jim Waltrip, All Web Leads CEO. "COBRA is a well-known option for those inbetween jobs, but many cannot afford COBRA benefits or don't know there are alternative plans available. The COBRA-insurance.com site provides consumers with a comprehensive view of appropriate insurance options that best suits their individual and family needs."
COBRA is a program that permits the continuation of employer-sponsored health insurance plans in order to provide temporary health insurance to eligible workers and their dependents when they are between jobs. While COBRA insurance is a sound option for many unemployed consumers, a short-term or private policy can often provide a better rate with comparable coverage.
COBRA-insurance.com is a part of the US Insurance Online (www.usinsuranceonline.com/) network of sites powered by All Web Leads. The site provides easy-to-understand information that clearly outlines employer responsibilities for providing COBRA insurance, as well as the pros and cons of utilizing this type of insurance versus purchasing coverage in the private market. Beyond educating consumers on their insurance options, the site also provides visitors with a simple way to obtain quotes from multiple agents that sell private health insurance plans, allowing consumers to make informed purchasing decisions. All Web Leads plans to incorporate additional features to the site later this year including community forums and other online support tools.
