My COBRA is a little over $500/month for a family of 4. Runs out in about 10 months, though.

You can get some quotes on line at www.quotesmith.com
Celtic is a large company that wants to become an even bigger player like BC/BS, their rates are very competitive but I'm not sure about your area.

COBRA is for current employees leaving employment with existing coverage.

IF you are not currently covered there is no COBRA to deal with. It is only a law that says employee can maintain the employers insurance at their own cost.

Health Insurance Premiums ALL depend on what co-pays you choose, deductibles, etc. or if you go HMO style... Can range from 200-1200/mo for the same family depending on the options.
