In addition to whatever replies you get, bear in mind that your state's
laws will dictate which options are available. By way of example, in New
York, it is illegal for an insurance company to deny coverage because of
pre-existing conditions, etc.

That is designed to prevent people from losing their jobs and coverage, and
being unable to obtain new coverage. Unfortunately, however, this results
in MANY (if not most) of the best health insurance companies flatly
refusing to cover anyone in NYS <sigh>. Moreover, for years, techies have
joined IEEE for health insurance benefits -- but they won't cover anyone in
NYS anymore, either <sigh>.
