This is a wonderful thing, it used to cover my COBRA insurance, however now the insurance has gone up to $966.17 per month and so the $10,000 no longer covers a complete year. Don't get me wrong, I am VERY thankful for the assistance, however, it's hard to still come up with the $1500 that I'm short for the year. I no longer can work, due to back problems and my husband at 76 is working 2 jobs, we're trying not to go on assistance.
