Who buys their own health insurance?

I'm looking into buying my own health insurance soon and was wondering who here buys their own? How much does it cost you and who they go with? Right now I'm getting quotes hoping to find the best route. Thanks.

  • This is a tough question to answer because pricing and policy is different in every state. We recently had to purchase our own and these article helped a lot:

    And this is a site that can give you quotes based on your needs:

  • That's true, I didn't think about every state having different pricing, thanks for the info.

  • Yes, each state has very different plans, and state laws and regulations, and each company has very different underwriting guidelines. I get alot of applications from ehealthinsurance. they seem to know what they are doing. They could be a good place to start to shop between different companies.
