    I desperately need health insurance. I had melanoma (5 of them) 4 years ago. Have not been declared dead yet!! :D but the doctors won't give me the ok. Also have a seriously terrible back. (Gosh, I sound like a wreck!) I am really not I am very active but my back can't keep up with me and no recent surgeries on melanoma. What kind of policy is a GOOD policy. (In a perfect world, 80/20, with prescription coverage and accepts preexisting problems) Cobra ran out in September and have not been to the doctor recently so I thought I would take my time and find a GOOD policy. Any thoughts or ideas from anyone? Seriously!!! Thanks for your feedback. If someone wants to contact me, please feel free to do so. I need to get something in place before I fall down and break any more bones!!!

    A lot depends on where you are. Some states have HIPAA continuation plans for those whose COBRA has expired. Others have a risk pool. Check with your state DOI to find out what options you have.

    If neither of those work out, your choice is any one of a number of indemnity plans that pay a flat dollar amount for every day hospitalized.

    You may also qualify for a group plan if you are self employed and live in a state where one life groups are allowed.

    If you are in the Kansas City area, I have a guy who I give all my junior clients to (junior for me is under 65). He is a broker and has all the major players out here. He is a good agent, honest, and will guide you the best direction.

    Somarco is correct. Some states have 1 person groups. 2 states where I'm licensed, CT and NH are good examples. CT 1 person groups can be set up anytime provided that one can prove they've been in business for a calendar quarter. NH has a once per year open enrollment.

    The original poster has probably already died of cancer by now.

    In 2014 it won't matter. You can wait until you get ill or seriously injured and buy insurance then.

    Thank you Obama-san.

    His last post was in May of 2007...may he rest in peace. Melanoma is a deadly form of cancer.
