Where To Find Affordable Health Insurance

In a troubled economy, where should an average, everyday senior look to find affordable health insurance coverage? The staggering number of uninsured senior american indicates that many seniors are asking this question but are unable to come up with adequate answers.

The first thing you want to do is to look into the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA). This allows many people who are not currently employed to leverage the health benefits of their most recent employer.

Of course there is always medicaid and medicare, which most people know about, but also check into workers compensation, if you are not working due to any work related injury you might have had.

You also might find that a high deductable 'emergency' type of insurance policy might be the best way to make sure you keep your health costs low.

And finally, make sure you check into getting group insurance though various organizations such as college or university alumni, masonic lodges, etc.
