    Is her mother in the picture? The cheapest option would be to add her to her moms insurance until you get another job. If you are required by court order to provide the health insurance, you could just pay the difference to her mom.

    Edit: Also, if you were laid off, the government is picking up part of the tab for COBRA. You should have gotten an ammended statement with a new monthly premium.

    did you see how much the premium is actually going to be? Cobra is no being subisidiesed like 60% by the government...if you have good insurance it'll probably be better than getting your own.
