    Hi There

    Suggest speaking with several insurance companies on your matter, but most of the insurance companies may look in to your job and earnings as they need to verify your paying capability. You may speak with your previous insurance company again as they know you better on this, sometimes you can get a better deal with them

    Cheers

    Not know what state you are in, I would recommend speaking with a knowledgable local agent who can show you the differences in plans. For the most part Group plans tend to havericher benefits but and Individual plan should be available however you might find to make the premiums affordable you mightneed to really raise the deductible. In some states that are Guaranteed Issue Individual plans are few and far between, that is the case here in Maine. Sometimes if you to your states dept of insurance they will provide or create brochures listing the companies offering plans in the state.

    None of the above statement by Duminda is true. If you are interested in getting some quotes and you do not know a licensed agent then google for "health insurance quotes" and go from there.
