This will add to the inductance of your choke if placed in series with it.  I
don't know if it will be too significant or not(haven't calculated it).   The
actual value of  the inductance is somewhat arbitrary anyway.  I wouldn't
worry too much about it.
   I would suggest you consider Terry's RCR filter circuit.  It seems to offer
better protection for neons than RF chokes, based on the results of his
experiments.  I killed two neons using chokes, but so far have had great
results using the RCR filter circuit.
