a useful health insurance INFORMATION website...

hi all...

while not a/s specific,

we've had an occasional discussion here related to getting or keeping medical health insurance...

usually the focus is...

1. getting new insurance when NO CURRENT coverage is present or...

2. full timing/ moving to another state and keeping or changing coverage...

3. what to do keep coverage when current insurance is LOST due to job or marital changes...

4. what coverage to get when self employed

5. what to do after retirement but before medicare starts...

we've provided each other some good info in the threads listed above...

and especially when the political rhetoric is minimized...

occasionally the suggest is to 'visit the escapees' website on insurance.

well i recently read/reviewed EVERY thread on the E site, and really there is NOT much useful material posted there.

i did however find a website in both a ny times and wash post insurance article that EVERYONE should know about.

Health Insurance and Coverage Help for Consumers Everywhere

this appears to be a NON PROFIT site that focuses on providing...

free RESOURCES, basic and detailed INFORMATION on health insurance...

simply click on the STATE u live or plan to live in, and a nice GUIDE for that area is available for download...

the website also has many other guides/resources and links on...

-consumer protection
-rights to coverage
-records privacy
-the billing maze/negotiations
-high risk state sponsored plans
-low income coverage options
-self employed insurance options

and so on...

the site focuses on issues for the u.s.a. only, so lets not start another border debate.

i reviewed some (not all) of the available material and it is very credible and up to date.

so for those of us with HEALTH INSURANCE QUESTIONS or NEEDS this website is an excellent first stop.


all of the true things that i am about to tell you are shameless lies. l.b.j.

we are here on earth to fart around. don't let anybody tell you any different. k.v.

I read a great book on the subject: The new Health Insurance Solution by Paul Zane Pilzer.

His website has some state-by-state info you might find useful too: Official Website of The New Health Insurance Solution

Looks very interesting! As someone who currently has great insurance, but will be "dropped like a hot potato" when I reach official Medicare age.... I am interested in my options!
