      No, you can't make payments. BUT, I'm pretty sure that federal law states that you can have a lapse of less than 63 days. Let me see if I can find the link.

      I've only sold a few health policies so I haven't kept up with the law.

      Hi, my husband recently changed jobs and we had to take the Cobra

      insurance for 3 months until his insurance at his new job takes

      effect…due to the fact that we both have pre-existing conditions and

      his new insurance at his new job could turn us down for that we found

      out.

      There cant be a lapse in insurance or the new ins. company can decline

      you and your family – no matter what. SO we are stuck with this Cobra

      insurance.

      We found that our prescription totals would be less then the premium

      but we have to have insurance to have us covered under a new job

      because of thep pre-existing conditions.

      Get this – our premium is $848.00 a month! But we have to have it or

      we may never be covered again if we have a lapse in insurance.

      Our next premium is due at the end of Dec. and it says it has to be

      paid in full…does anyone know if we can make payments to them or

      what else we can do…thats alot of money for us and will take over 2

      paychecks to just pay for the insurance.

      We only have to have it until Feb. 1st but it's killing us and our

      Christmas by paying it.

      Anything you know about Cobra would be great.

      We tried to sign up for a few things but PPA was not a insurance

      policy and we would lapse and risk losing insurance for us and our

      kids, and through the state we make $48.00 too much gross.

      If they would look at what we bring home in pay instead of gross wew

      would be under the limit by alot. So we are stuck with cobra.

      Thank you.
