How much is cobra insurance in California?
You get paid twice per month, so your portion of the monthly premiums is $250. Your employer contributes $400 per month toward your health insurance premiums, so the total cost of your job-based health plan is $650 per month. To figure the 2 percent service charge, multiply that $650 monthly premium by 0.02.
