In brief: It is unsubsidized.

The consolidated omnibus budget reconciliation act of 1985 (cobra) is a law that allows employer-provided health coverage to continue after leaving the job.
Under cobra, individuals often pay the full premium for coverage, which was previously subsidized by the employer. Under the obama stimulus (arra) of 2009, a 65% subsidy for 15 months was provided.
