I think the question about benefits and equivalence is not germane. The whole point for the company, in offering to hire him back on contract, is to get the same work at lower cost by removing the back-end costs like insurance premiums.  It would make no economic sense for them to hire him back at a rate that costs them as much as it would if he was salaried.

I'd say agree to the 13 hours a week, because that allows you enough time to look for other contract jobs. Ask for a pay rate of $25 an hour and point out that since they're no longer paying for your health insurance and other overhead, they're still saving a lot of money even at the slightly higher pay rate.  If you ask for more than $25 an hour they'll probably just go find some kid right out of school and offer him $20.

Did you get benefits at the old job?  You can counter with wanting the
equivalent of your old salary plus benefits.
